Hey JP, glad to hear you are still working on your birds, cant wait to see it finished up. Maybe we should start an idea thread on "HOW I WOULD BUILD MY AIRCRAFT CARRIER"
Im glad Zoomie is switching mediums, wood and foamboard are much easier to manipulate than the stuff he was using. To date, ive built about 8 carriers, each one changing to show the upgrades that I learned while I was working on the previous one. This is a big undertaking and whatever is going on in someone's personal or private life will definately interfere and delay it. Be it wood, rubbermaid stackable shelves, bookcases, anything can be used to make a big JOE project. I would really like to see what design upgrades and proposals that Zoomie is going to put in. I am crazy about putting in elevator decks that can be moved, not so big in the fabricating department, but those adjustable shelves with the triangular supports will be doing it for me. I still have to get more Rubbermaid shelves to make the support base then I still have to figure out how I want to cut the front end and where to anchor the railing for the adjustable shelves. Just got my contract renewed and Im going to school....again, things take time. This thread has been going for awhile and while some of us would really like to see it progress, its still one guy doing all the work. Perhaps Zoomie can post pictures or sketches of what he decides to do. All in all, I think its cool he is still wanting to do it and I wish him the best.

Yeah the birds will be constructed....one day, after ALL and I do mean ALL materials are in stock lol.
The one thing I wanna do actually is make molds of the parts I have that are viable to use such as missles, drop tanks, and for the Tomcats the Forward Chin Pods.
I bought Chin Pods, and Lantrins for laser giuded bombs on Ebay. They are for 1/32 scale models and are PERFECT size for the Skystrikers, so much so in fact that I may even get 1/32 scale cockpits for them. ANYHOW those parts come from England and weren't cheap, so I wanna learn how to make my own molds of these parts and make my own, this way I have a supply at a VERY LOW cost to me, and I might even sell them.
Anyhow until I begin fabricating the parts in numbers I am on hold for the time being.
