Gallery Models 1/350th USS Wasp
As a rule, I’m not really a “ship guy”, but this one caught my eye (if for nothing else, the plethora of aircraft/helicopters included). Also deep in the bowels are a myriad of Marine assault weapons (tanks, howitzers, etc.), along with landing craft and LCAT’s.
I actually enjoyed building this kit, although it took me a better part of two months to complete. I refrained from attempting the multitude of PE parts (railings, ladders, etc.) – as I said, I don’t have any experience with that sort of thing and didn’t wanna take the chance of ruining what I did manage to accomplish (albeit a novice to most of you ship-builders). The wife was kind enough to allow me a display area beneath one of the entertainment centers, so the ship is behind glass doors – at least it’ll keep the dust off a “little” longer than usual.
