Just some little update renders, still a long way to go with the details.
Oh my my, this is going to be great too
It looks wonderful Michael
I think a 27 Charlie Carrier is a capitol idea. Uss Hancock, or the USS
Bon Homme Richard, or the Oriskiny "AKA Crispy O"
I did my Viet Nam time on the Bonnie Dick and the Hancock with F-8C
Mig Killing Crusaders ala VF-24 as an Ordie......
I retired with 24 years in, been retired 22 years now.

Watch this space, low poly static Crusader soon rendered....naked....with out paint LOL.
VF-24 ehh , checker tails ?, kewl colors.
As far as I can tell there was only four staple attack 27C carriers in Vietnam
Oriskany 10 tours
Bonnie Dick 6 tours
Hancock 9 tours
Tico 5 tours + 2 CVS ( anti sub )
Two others did one tour as CVA
Intrepid 1 tour + 2 CVS but not AS aircraft, oddly attack aircraft but still CVS not CVA.
Shangri La 1 tour
The others served only as Anti sub tours with helos and Stoofs.
The model I opted for are the three odd balls with the different elevator layout, Intrepid, Tico, Hancock, all three are very similar until Intrepid converted to CVS, so I'll probably opt for either Hancock or Tico, Bonnie Dick and Oriskany would require some large changes to the ship model to be authentic.
I've still yet to go through all the color plates for each Sqn and pick the right ones, that alone is a mine field in its self LOL.
Thanks for the comments, always pleased to hear from Vets who deployed, adds that personal touch...I think so any way.
Addendum, hmm something not feeling right here ?, few little bits to add and an attempt to lower the poly count a little more, looks like a Crusader but doesnt yet 'feel' like a Crusader....will sleep on it for a few days, perhaps too close and too intense a modeling session to see the wood clearly from the trees .
They look like Crusaders to me, just need a little paint.
Would realy like to see some of the Mid-Sixty and seventy carriers that you can land on and take off
When it be in water
What he said!
Hey Michael, is this one permanently in dry dock?!
Well I've been to one World Fair a picnic and a rodeo and that's the stupidest thing I've ever heard come over a set of earphones.
