Are There Any Aircraft Carrier Kits around from Korea to Vietnam era?

All I am finding are kits with post 1980's refits, etc.
Anything out there that I can fill a deck with Panthers or Phantoms?
thx - Craig

Dragon's Essex's should suit. The Bonhomme Richard is in Korean War mode, while the Antietam is in first angled deck mode--early and late-- with Cutlasses on deck.

That narrows it down to a very specific point in time, given the F7U's short service life.

Somewhere around here I have the airplanes from a large Forrestal. The planes were Demons, Cutlasses, and S2Fs, rounded out with CH-46s. I also have some Phantoms, but that may be from another kit.

IIRC, Revell made 1/500-something kits of the Midway Class carriers. I had the Coral Sea and the FDR at one time. Both were passed on to others since.

Most of the Midway class were kept in service during that period, weren't they?

Revell used to have quite a few aircraft carrier kits, some of which were Korean or Vietnam war vintage as far as aircraft went. There was also a very large Aurora kit of the Enterprise with Vietnam era aircraft.

Well, for Korea the new DML/Dragon releases should be nice, in 1:700 scale: Boxer in Korea fit, and one more I forget the name now.

No. Boxer is in LPH mode, with 8 helos on deck.

You can't go by name alone. Look up each ship's picture or description to see the aircraft outfit--after the LPH's, the sub hunters are next with a deck fit of S2F's.

Revell's 1/720 big E used to have F4s and A4s. Don't know whats in the newer issues This subject came up a while back when I was looking for early '60s box scale A/C to use on a project (Thanks Again Bill!) With all the big carriers Trumpeter is/was throwing out, it should have been a no brainer to do converted long and short hulled Essex classes, to fill this void. Even if they made seperate bow and stern sections (and sponsons to go with the new deck) for us to swap in would be nice.
