    I believe origami designed the small aircraft which Highlander used on his USS Essex. If you haven't already done so, check out the North American Furys that origami designed; like all of his aircraft, they're awesome. Here's a direct link:

    Well actually I was thiniking a bit smaller than 1/72 for the Maggie, but it was only about 2/3rds the size of the Essex Class, of which the USS Wasp was one if I am not mistaken.

    I think that I'd be satisfied with just a section of flight deck and the Island. for display purposes.

    Is the Wasp your design? If it is are you going to release her as a kit? And if it is a kit already where can we get one?

    Thanks guys for your kind words.:)
    Yes I designed aircraft for Highlander’s Essex but only Helldiver and Dauntless. Hellcat and Avanger are designed by Grzegorz Nowak – a professional designer. I only adjusted their schemes to Essex carrier and resized to 1:300. Grzegorz let me share these aircrafts for no-comercial use on my website.

    Rick, it’s a good idea with this flight deck. I’ll try to prepare something like that, but I must find some materials referring to flight deck of HMCS Magnificent.

    Cmdrted, yes Wasp is my design. I doubt if I can release that kit after I finish because most of works I made directly on the model – without computer and I don’t have any documentation of it. Mayby next project...

    Rick............because the US Navy has a habit of continuing ship names, it can be confusing.

    But this will help on the WASP............

    The eighth USS Wasp (CV-7) was a United States Navy aircraft carrier.
    She was the sole ship of her class. Built to use up the remaining tonnage allowed to the United States for aircraft carriers under the treaties of the time, she was built on a reduced-size version of the Yorktown class hull.

    The ninth USS Wasp (CV-18 ) of the United States Navy was an Essex-class aircraft carrier. The ship was laid down as Oriskany on 18 March 1942 at Quincy, Massachusetts, by the Bethlehem Steel Company; renamed Wasp on 13 November 1942, in honor of her fallen predecessor CV-7.

    Hi Barry,

    The whetering I made using Photoshop. The model was printed on 180g paper on color laserjet. The cockpit I made using paper mould with plaster filling:
    Next I warmed up transparent plastic using hot air gun.

    Chris :)
