JSC USS Card 1/400 repainted

Hello all this is my first posting here. My German is very bad perhaps I can learn alittle from the forum. Guten Abend vom Avondale, Pennsylvania USA. I've started on the standard JSC Card about 5-7 years ago and never finished. This fall I decided to have another go at it. But the colors seemed to bother me, particularly the flight deck so I bought another kit scanned it and paintshopped the colors to be more appropriate. There will be comparisons of old and new with this building report. Here is the old flight deck with some aircraft on it and the new colors. The 2nd pic is the new hull aft overtop the old. And some other coloring of the flight deck...

The hull

JSC uses a differant method for their ship hulls. The have an inner plain structure with minimal formers, some bulkheads and little to no laminated formers. After building this main inner structure the colored parts are skinned. The good thing about rebuilding something you started before you can correct mistakes, yours and the kits!

Skinning the hull pt1

As before the box structure was built up. I started on the forward and after decks before skinning. The forward deck was very plain, so I added a better anchor/winch/chains gear. Also I made up some fire hoses and made the bulkheads a little more 3D. The portholes were punched out and a green backing was place to give more depth. I also made up some watertight doors. Tou can see some early progress of the new deck and 2nd pic is the kit deck. The 3rd pic and arrows show a fault in the kit design the fore peak has a big gap that needed to be included with the new deck...

Skinning the hull part 2

The next part was putting the colored hull skins on the plain under structure. For no particular reason I started port forward, continued aft the aft starboard and the forward stb piece. There is a little overlap that can be either trimmed to fit edge to edge or you can overlap the excess hull. I chose to trim the pieces I think it looks better that way. Here are the sequence of picures along with some of the aft deck being finished...

Hoi Ted,

Is this USS Card built out of the A4 sheet or from the first edition A3 sheet format?

This is the next edition in A4 sheets. I see from the JSC website that they have struck this from the available list maybe they are repainting it in their new CAD format.

Well Ted,

This model has been out of sale for some years by now, becoming a collector's item. As Bartek is very busy continuously because of new models, I do not expect the model being released again on short terms,

Finishing the foredeck and after deck

The next bit is finishing the forward and after deck. The kit has plain details and 2 empty towers aft that I think has small gundirectors in it. I made up a few directors, closed of the huge openings in the after hull with paper tarps and railed the area off with JSC laser cut railings. The foredeck received the same treatment...

Flight deck

Hallo,
I'm finishing up the JSC Repaint, the next series is the flight deck. It was able to be placed inverted and weighted to insure it comes out flat. Also I strung some silk thread arresting cables across for better detail...

Hull sides

These were modified and placed in the appropriate spots. I used 1/400 laser cut railings from papermodelshop.com. I also reworked the 40mm and 20mm guns to look a bit more like the prototypes. I used GPM 20mm barrels for the 40mm guns, worked out pretty good. You can see the stock guns in the photos...

Carrier airwing

The aircraft needed modified also. The kit planes were pretty good shape wise but lacked surface details. I used the markings on the free downloaded airplanes on the Konkradus sites as a guide to repaint the JSC wildcats and avengers...

Thankyou Jorg. I have admired your work with these kits for quite some time. Many years ago I started with GPM 1n 1/400 scale and after a few kits I was not happy with the level of detail so I switched to 1/250. This was large enough for detailing but I soon ran out of room. I bought alot of GPM barrels in 1/200 scale but now that I switched back to 1/400 i needed to do something with the barrels, so viola', I pressed them into smaller service. I started with the 25mm Japanese barrels but they loooked to thin. I think I'll use them to represent the English 40mmm pompom guns, who knows?
