    Dedo,

    ––YES, I would definitely be interested in purchasing several of your CV deck decals for my on-going project of a highly detailed/painted A&A game set.

    ––Also, I thought I’d mention the CVE escort carrier that HBG produced, I believe it was a “Casablanca” class.  I didn’t see it in your listing of available A&A units.

    ––I’m very much looking forward to your making ALL of these decals available. Keep up the good work!

    Here are some of Enterprise. I could not find any plan drawings, but these should work pretty well if you can modify a comparable file… e.g. Yorktown or Hornet or Essex.

    Having some decals in the early war style (for Lexington, Saratoga, Yorktown, Enterprise and Hornet) would be cool. Wasn’t sure if you planned on doing some of these.

    The lines are yellow and there are abbreviated markings of the ship name at the bow and stern of the flight deck.

    Here is one more of Enterprise early war and mid war.

    This is a good site for finding some drawings, if you didn’t already know about it.

    cbm shapes of:

    Illustrious
    Shinano

    cbm shapes are the background layers for the flight deck decals. They are related to the dimensions of the sculpts.

    Thanks Dedo, these are quite nice.


  • 2018 2017 '16

    Wish list:

    • What I still need is a silhouette of the flight deck of the sculpt of the italian carrier “Aquila”. Does anyone have one? Even though I got two sculpts of the Aquila I can’t scan them due to there huge island (tower part of the ship) and I don’t want to “decapitate” my italian carriers, because they are already painted.

    • coloured drawings of Aquila, Kostromitinowa and Graf Zeppelin

    …I appreciate any support, there is still a lot to do…

    First try of the HMS Illustrious.

    In my opinion, the sculpt designer must be somewhat blind…definitely, this sculpt wasn’t build to the dimensions of the original. There were a lot of differences in width and length of the sculpt in comparison to detailled carrier drawings, especially it was a pain to adjust bow and stern.

    However, here it is…

    These are awesome.


  • 2018 2017 '16

    Second one…

    CV HMS Formidable 1942 (Illustrious Class)

    first try of the USS wasp….

    Illustrious Class Mk II
    Here is the ‘pill-box’ version of the illustrious class. When I tried the former decal version, it occured that the ‘bumps’ on the flight deck (AA-guns) brought some problems about when attaching the decals. Additionally, the island (tower) shape was modified.

    First attachment of decals: USS Wasp

    • hull painted simply in grey (revell 76)
    • flight deck painted in white (revell 5)
    • smaller pill boxes cut off

    Is there a site up where we can purchase the decals for all of the axis and allies?


  • 2018 2017 '16 '15 Customizer

    @wartorn:

    This is where most people here purchase their decals from:
