nice..like the bright colors/schemes..
Thanks Everyone, for your interest and encouragement. Have one or two more "bright" schemes I'm looking to do for the S-2F3. I can also throw in some "Plain Vanilla" work horse S-2s and E-1s if the interest is there. :salute:
I do look forward to your renditions sir! Bring'em on! :jump:
Would also love to see more from johnh_049 as his work is outstanding as well. :wiggle:
Keep up the early colourful paints. At present Mil and Navy Avn is grey, grey, grey, with the only variation being clean grey or dirty grey. Some of the United States Navy colour schemes from the late fifties to the late sixties are outstanding.
Many thanks for all of your works so far. Much appreciated and much flown.
Watching Milton and his team producing the recent G7 project has given me a humbling insight into the sheer personal committment and skills of you guys. My sincere thanks to you all.
Two WIPs, VS-22 USS Wasp 1971 and VS-29 USS Kearsarge 1969. Hope to upload soon!
Hey Duckie, You know you could do three different squadrons with this scheme. VS-71(Red), VS-72(Yellow) and VS-73(Blue). All three were part of CVSGR-70. All used the AW tailcode! I found a few pics in the Hall Park Warpaint book on the Stoof. If you don't have the book, I can scan the pics for you!
I'll PM my e-mail to you. Thanks very much for the offer of the scan.
I made an observation to Milton regarding the "piano hinge" visible on the starboard side of the Beta S2F, namely that it should be removed. Milton stated that it was painted, not modeled, and that he would so-advise Snurdley (who had painted the Beta).
The origin of the starboard piano hinge dates to the very early S2F when Milton initially used a full-width weapons bay before realizing the Stoof has only a half-width bay. So if you have not as yet released your repaint....
my thanks to both Steve and Dave for the wonderful Grummans schemes..!! i will be watching for the
colorful S-2Fs..!! and a "generic" gray over white with black nosed radome would also be great..!! :wiggle:
