USS Wasp CV-7 
by Mike Bridge 

1/700 USS Wasp CV-7 (Aoshima)

I used the Aoshima kit along with the Aoshima Wasp PE set.  I added 3D Modelparts 5 inch guns, 1.1 quads, single 20 mm, and .50 caliber machine guns.  I used Trumpeter F4Fs and SBDs instead of the kit aircraft.  I added a little detail to the section of the hanger deck near the bow and made the base from acrylic gel painted and glossed.  I painted her using AK Interactive acrylics.  I modeled her as she was on September 15, 1942 making the turn to starboard just prior to the torpedoes striking.
