Re: Fly hawk POW Question
There are some completed 1/350 KGV, PoW and Repulse kits shown on the internet which have PE cradles under the planes. There are numerous archival photos of Walruses aboard ship showing that the wheels were still in place while the planes were sitting on the cradles. I'll bet you could study these pics and make cradles from your PE parts inventory.
I am building the Flyhawk POW. The instructions show how to assemble the Walrus amphibious aircraft, both with and without photoetched parts. But they say nothing about mounting it on the ship itself.
More importantly, I am unable to find a launch cradle for the aircraft. Drawings show some sort of cradle that rides on the catapault rails. But the instructions do not show such an assembly, nor can I find anything on either the styrene sprues or the photoetched frets. Am I missing something?
