WASP Amphibious Assault Ship
Gallery Models 1/350th scale USS Wasp had a plethora of aircraft included – it’s what caught my eye as a [primarily] aircraft model enthusiast. It seemed a daunting task at first, but after a few weeks, it started to become a little easier as the build progressed. I of course completed all the aircraft/helicopters first – followed by the assortment of Marine land equipment (Bradley fighting vehicles, M1-A Abrams and M-60 tanks, Strykers, HumVee’s, even howitzers – none of which can be seen because they’re located in the well deck beneath the flight deck – which I left unglued so as to display my handiwork to anyone who wished to see it (so far, nobody). There’s hovercraft and LST’s in there, too – trust me. My wife was kind enough to allow me display space behind the glass doors of the entertainment center. i think it’s the only kit that remains dust-free in my collection!
