Wow!

That is nice work. What era is it? I plan to modify my America. My scratch build has some flaws and this will make a nice upgrade. I have to rework CAT One as well.

I think 1964-1976 Mark. Could be wrong. Just a guess.

Thanks Mark and I understand gtbred. It is taking a lot longer than I thought to get it this far. I now understand a lot more of how crazy I am..... :heh:
I am hoping by December to put her in the lake for engine room trials.

Okay order the Kitty Hawk to be converted into Indy. I did a 1/350 Sara in papercard years ago. So it shouldn't be that hard.

It is Peter the Great, Mark.

gtbred, she will be getting her hanger deck and flight deck early next year with the island shortly after. Have to get the elevators mechanics in first though.

Image Starboard side near the 1cat overhang is wrong. Should be more like J.F.K or Nimitz class.

Hi Pawly,

This is tough to see on the site due to size limitations but save the pic and expand it and it will answer your questions and then some.


Merry Christmas,

Mark
