USS Hornet – Doolittle’s Raiders
I picked up this 1/700th scale ‘waterline’ kit and decided I’d try something “off the wall” with it. I’m not usually a “ship guy”, but I wanted to try an idea I had. i took some aluminum foil, crumpled it up and sprayed some color(s) on it. After flattening it back out again (sorta), I put it under the glass of an old picture frame I had and super-glued the ship to the glass. I think it actually turned out looking somewhat like water. I’d never tried the “gel” thing and this seemed a whole lot easier for the effect I wanted. Anyhow, it did fulfill my aircraft itch – after all, t had 16 B-25’s included.
