USS FORRESTAL

1/32 Scale Tamiya #60306
Flyaway 04 December 1968

AMARG 24 April 1987
Scrapped 30 December 2008

I installed Eduard #32530 Detail Set in the Cockpit. The included MB Ejection Seats aren't great so I
decided use the included pilots. Had to do some surgery on them and the seats to get them to sit
properly. Added Rear Panel Instrument wiring. Finished with Model Master enamels and acrylics.  
Engine exhaust areas were done with Model Master Metallizer. Kit comes with marking for three units.
VF-96, VF-151 and VMFA-451. Everyone does VF-96. The infamous "Showtime 100".  I liked the Blue
used by VMFA-451 and it's different so I went with that.
