Thai Paperwork SOC Seagull 1/100

Got some 32lb paper and this build is going much better. The extra stiffness makes the paper much easier to work with for me.

Nice work, Michael. The SOC was a really pretty airplane to my eyes, and you model captures its appearance very well. I am glad to know about the 32lb paper and am enjoying your successive projects, which get better and better.

Nobi probably identified this aircraft (Bureau of Aeronautics [BuAer] Number 1134 9-CS-9) as Aircraft No. 9 of Cruiser Scout Squadron [VCS] 9, as it appeared aboard USS Phoenix [CL-46] in 1939, at which time Phoenix was part of Cruiser Division 9, which was part of Cruisers, Battle Force, U.S. Fleet and based at San Pedro. [Fahey, p. 26; Larkins, p. 143]]

Incidentally, Joe Baugher's very useful US Navy and US Marine Corps BuNos, Second Series (0001 to 5029) indicates that this aircraft was lost at sea while operating from USS Honolulu (CL-48) on 11 June 1942. Honolulu was operating in the Aleutian islands and based at Kodiak at that time, according to the Dictionary of American Naval Fighting Ships.

I'm looking forward the completion of this build and your next one.

Don,

Many thanks for your research. I have the old Profile Publications book for the SOC and this is the 4 view depicted in this book. Very interesting to read about how they were recovered at sea.

There are a number of videos of SOC Seagulls available on You Tube, as well.
