Dick's comments about the Trumpeter and Academy YORKTOWN Class kits results in these comments from you. So just where in these comments are you talking about USS WASP (and yes I know about the under scaling issues of this kit, BUT Dick didn't mention it in his initial post and neither did you in the posts before I wrote my response). Anyone reading your comments would NATURALLY assume you are talking about the two kits that Dick was discussing in detail.
You completely ignore what you actually wrote, not what you left in your head. I'm sorry for you.
: It's not like drawings and dimensions are

: Randy Stone
: Then you wrote this;
: : ...handle dimensioning wrt everything
: pipe fittings to OEM aircraft components.
: We certainly have access to appropriate dimensions of--say--CV-6.
: I don't understand why the cutting of the

: I do understand, and I certainly appreciate,
: that kit manufacturers are turning out
: innumerable and fabulous pieces of work

: and Lindberg kits so many years ago.
: Still, I can't help but believe that they

: They ought to know that.

: I certainly made no comment about the

: Further, had you some doubt as to precisely

: inquiry would have sufficed. Actually, I
