First Look

J's Work is an interesting company producing a nice range of details and diorama accessories of use to a wide range of modelers. In this release, we have a set of 60 of the star-type tie-down points that are embedded into the flight decks of US aircraft carriers and amphibious assault ship flight decks. These tie-down points allow the plane captains and their teams to tie down fixed and rotary-winged aircraft with heavy chains to keep aircraft from being swept over the side or into the path of other aircraft.

Modern US Aircraft Carrier Tie-Downs

If you're building the variety of Tomcats, Hornets, Super Hornets, or other modern naval aviation subject in 1/72 scale, this set will provide you with the requisite tie-down points that you can mount into your display base and chain down your model just as they are in full-scale. Chains not included.

You can obtain J's Work details and accessories from Lucky Model.

My sincere thanks to J's Work for this review sample!
