Thumbs up 1/72 Carrier Deck Diorama - Airstrike Toys

Hey guys! We are new to this forum but not to military models...

I have some good news for 1/72 scale collectors! We just released a modern US Navy diorama set. It is designed after the launching catapult #1 off of the Nimitz, Kitty Hawk & Forrestal class carriers.

Here are a few pictures…











We are offering the diorama set as either painted and ready to display or for those guys that are good with an airbrush we have them ready to paint.

Included with the set are:

• Base / Deck – 16 1/2” by 11 ½”
• Raised Jet Blast Deflector
• Catapult Shuttle
• Hold Backs
• Launch Control Dome with Clear Windows
• Open Steam Pressure Hatch
• Deck / Launch Crew – 7 Figures (Safety Checkers, Aircraft Handlers & a Shooter)

The diorama is designed to fit Century Wings diecast aircraft in the “launch configuration”, nose dropped and flaps down. However, the diorama will fit any 1/72 scale naval aircraft ranging from plastic kits to diecast planes from Century Wings, Hobby Master and Dragon Wings.









We are also offering the deck / launch crew (7 figures) separately for those collectors that want to add our figures to their existing dioramas.

We have more in the works! Let us know what you think!

Thanks,
Patrick

Impressed,how about the price for painted set? With the non painted set, do I need paint the flight deck or only need do the ground crew? Do they provide the custom order?maybe I want one big diorama.

What's the possibility of providing sections of a flight deck to assemble into one huge 1/72 flight deck, including the island and elevators? That would be awesome!

Thanks for the feedback so far! These are available through our website (www.airstriketoys.com) currently at the intro (discounted) price of $99.99 for the painted diorama set (crew included).

We also offer them as separate items, both painted and unpainted. As for custom paint on the crew, we will be offering more crew sets in the future (1st Qtr 2009) that are specific to the dioramas being released (i.e. launch crew, weapons loading crew, etc...).

Finally, we will also offer vehicles to go with the sets (fire trucks, deck mules, loaders, etc...).

Thanks!
Patrick

It would be awesome! Unfortunately there would be very few buyers for an entire deck, so we will be offering A LOT of different diorama sets for specific operations on the carrier (loading, catapults, etc...).

Also, we will be covering all era's (Vietnam, Korea, Gulf War, WWII, etc.) for both naval and air force operations in both 1/72 and 1/144. When ever possible, we will add verticle dimension to the dioramas for more realism (i.e. part of the island, revetment walls, etc..)

1/144 will mostly be designed for the big planes (bombers & transports) but we might sneak a Nimitz class twin catapult diorama in there next year. That's a maybe...

Thanks,
Patrick
