Beautiful build, I never worked on anything so fast. My whole career was spent in slow round nosed aircraft with windshield wipers! The S-3 was probably the fastest I suppose. Anyway very nice build!

thanx, sure youve seen yor share of em though!
S-3, thats the viking, right?
Yes I served in VS-38 and VS 41. Combat cruise in VS 38 during Iraqi Freedom.
well let me be one of the many who have probably (or should have) thanked you for your service.
Thanks it was definitely a model builders dream, and mostly a lot of fun.

Excellent job on the finish, weathering and detail….those wheel wells look awesome!
thanx, this was actually a nice detailed kit for a standard revell ( not the revell of germany kit) good fit, no flash, nice recessed panel lines, and cheap! got it for $20. still need to arm it!

Yes the wells do look great and Jeff I served in VAW 124, 120 & 115, VS 38 & 41, VRC 30 Det 3, and HSC 21. Carriers I deployed on for cruises were: USS Nimitz, USS Theodore Roosevelt, USS Abraham Lincoln, USS Independence, and USS Constellation. I did shorter detachments while in the 2 RAG squadrons (VAW 120 and VS 41) aboard USS Eisenhower, USS Ronald Reagan & USS John C Stennis. I think that is all, I lose track now and again!
