With all the SBD's and Wildcats among others being pulled out of Lake Michigan in recent years I think it is way overdue to have a proper 1/350 Scale or larger USS Sable and USS Wolverine on the market. I'd surely purchase one.

Would need a flock of SNJ's to land on it.

I'm sure MSWs know all about these, but I found this article particularly well put together.
