Anyone out there wih more expiriance in building WWII planes, I need to make some for my aircraft carrier that I'm building. If anyone has any tips, please tell me, i.e. hellcats, widcats, etc.
I have an F4U Corsair you might like looking at... Permalink
I love the avenger... I think ill build that next, now that i think of it... But, I think a good carrier plane to start with (If you are) is the wildcat... it has a relativley easy to build fusalauge, plus you dont need to make up excuses for no wheel well covers! Permalink

Well isn't that odd. My carrier isn't going to be 20 feet long either. I'll probably settle for 2 or 3 yards, by my rough estimation, the flight deck will be about 3 times the length of the superstructure, and about three times as wide. And on the topic of aircraft, another common type aboard the BIG E were Wildcats, and I've built a wildcat now. Its pretty basic in design, I wanted to kepp it small to fit the peramiters of my carrier. One drawback is I couldn't get all the design features I wanted into the design, mainly, The wings can;t fold up, but I wanted the design to be mass produceable, so I kept it simple.
Im not sure how you built your Wildcat but if you used a similar building technique like i did on the wings of my F4U or A6M5 Zero you could easily make them fold up.... Permalink
umm im makeing a aircraft carrier on lego digital desiner and so far it is goin to fit a feww minifigs so that will be good. a good aircraft to add is a f8f bearcat naval fighter because it looks preety eeeaasssy to make also im makeing a grumman f3f biplane so stay tuned. Permalink
