Finished and WIP ships of the Turbo-verse
« on: July 12, 2015, 12:53:51 PM »
Similar to my aircraft thread, I wanted to show y'all my ships too.  Or rather, ship, since I've only completed one so far, except decals, since I lost the decal sheet  :-\

The kit is the Dragon 1/700 USS Mobile Bay.









I had a friend who claimed the Mobile Bay was painted with a sand colored top side while she was assigned as Air Defense Commander during the Gulf War.  I have never been able to find anything to confirm that (as I said in my intro post, I hate research) but the idea was so cool sounding, I did it anyway.  If I ever find the decal sheet, she will get her numbers and name put on.

I would surprised if that was the case - especially as there don't appear to be any photos around.
All hail the God of Frustration!!!

If you paint the hull white you'd be close to the old RN China station scheme.
