i start with square microstrip and gently file down one end to give the taper. one is easy a full matching set drives you mad!
I think I've gone crazy. Two USN aircraft carriers in a row. And both loaded with 40mm and 20mm. Last one was the Enterprise late war; this time it is the Yorktown II late war, which had 17 @ 40mm quads plus a ton of 20mm. And one of those wild camouflage schemes. I've got to go for something "simple" for my next project. Photos follow. Also on my website in the USA WW2 A/C carriers gallery, last page of same.
