This is a ship that I would really like to try doing in 1/200 scale cardstock. This ship doesn't exist in plastic as far as I know. This is the U.S.S. Wolverine (IX-64) which was a training aircraft carrier on Lake Michigan during WW2. It one of only two paddlewheel aircraft carriers ever built and was built from the largest sidewheel steamer on the Great Lakes, the SS Seeandbee. The other sidewheel aircraft carrier on Lake Michigan was the U.S.S. Sable (IX-81) which was built from the S.S. Greater Buffalo. This is something I'd truly like to render and build as it is pretty unique. I have seen a 1:72 Scale scratchbuilt wooden model online that was pretty impressive though. Here's a pic of the SS Seeandbee and the USS Wolverine that she was converted into. In the second pic the Wolverine is berthed at Navy Pier in Chicago. To her starboard you can see the S.S. Greater Buffalo very shortly after work started to convert her into the U.S.S. Sable. As a note, neither of these ships were true aircraft carriers. They did not have elevators or hangar decks, aircraft would either do a touch-and-go, or re-launch immediately after completing a trap. Many Naval Aviators in WW2 qualified for carrier landings on these two ships, including a future president, Ensign George Bush.
