Thank you guys. Actually, the main structures are relatively easy to do and not to much time consuming. when i will enter the details, it will be another story.

Hi Jaguar I have been following your Nimitz build impressive work for sure . Question will you be installing any lighting ? The great thing about carriers is there is so much choice but trying to locate the drawings , well not always an easy task .

Thank you Dave, and of course, you are right, is not an easy task to find the correct drawings. You always are looking for information for "secret places" and so on. Sometimes you have to rework some places on the carrier because you discover too late a mistake. It always happen with such a long time building projects.

Of course, the hangar deck, the flight deck, etc will have its lightning with different types of leds. Currently, i´m looking for information about an IC for lightning the center line of the landing area.

Thanks for your comments

Well, here we are. I continue working on the hangar bay.

Image

Main door of elevator nº 4, i discovered that is better to build and paint the parts one by one before glue them together

Image

Image

Now, starting the tedious work of make the holes for the padeyes.

Image

Image

Image

Image

I have used tamiya putty to simulate the joins between the antiskid plates
Image

Image

That,s all. Next to come: to paint the hangar bay
