This point of how to get the airplanes ready for the relevant to the carrier is troublesome and annoying.
In my case I bought the airplanes soon after I got the kit of the carrier,but the planes of Japanese-made were 1/100 while the carrier was 1/96 Deans marine  {-) {-)
  I got 22 Seafire fighters in those days of 14 years before.
I feel it's more impressive and realistic if some airplanes should be aboard the carrier.

190 worth on that flight deck Backerther. Wonder what's difficult about making a 'Master', then a silicon rubber mold and casting?

Hi Ian;
Thanks for your comment.
I bought just ¥300(less than £2)each in those days while MSRP was £3.2 at a Hobby show here in Japan.
All that I did with them was just to assemble the already painted plastic model kits made by the Dohyusha company in Japan.  %%

Your kit is excellent! I can't wait to finish a project and then use some of the box full I ordered back in 2019 :)
