Did some detail work on the island. Added some radar domes and some rails. Started adding rails around some of the main hull and mounted the hull to the base.

Added some scratch details along the port side. Started working on scratch building the main mast but don't have any pics of that yet.

Those railings really add to the model for sure.

Added the life raft canisters and finished the main mast. I added a picture of the kit mast compared to the one I scratch built. Mine is completely accurate but looks much better than the kit one. I am pretty happy with how it turned out.

Ohh yeah! That really brings the mast up to par with the rest of your build. I’m enjoying folowing along :cool_2:

Sorry, I noticed a typo in my above post. It should say the mast is not completely accurate. It may be a little bit off compared to the actual mast but still turned out pretty good. I hope to mount the mast tonight and work on some other PE details for the island as well. Thanks for the kind words Themongoose! This is my first modern carrier and I am enjoying the build so far. :thumbs_up_1:

A little more work on the island. I also started on the antenna assembly that goes behind the island but I don't have any pictures of that yet.

That’s coming together nicely. I really like the antennas in pe. What a great job.

Finished assembling the aft radar tower from the PE set and added a few details to it plus mounted on the flight deck.

Hi there. I am liking your model so far however I wanted to point out something before you go to far. I noticed that your title says that you are trying to model 2014 correct? I saw that you rebuilt the main mast to give it the post 2009 RCOH look that the carriers are all receiving...but the after radar mast is incorrect as those have also been remodeled in the RCOH. See this link for an example: https://www.navysite.de/cvn/cvn70_32.htm

The Italeri models all seem to represent the carriers in the pre RCOH form and their Ronald Reagan and George H W Bush do not have the mast at all as it was eliminated on those ships.

Jordin thanks for the tip. I saw that it was different after assembling the PE one. I will be working on a better looking scratch one this weekend. Thanks again :thumbs_up_1:

No problem. I know it would tick me off if I did it all and then realized after it was all done that it wasn't right...I like how your main mast turned out and will be watching to see what you create for this one.

The new radar mast assembly is almost done. I need to paint it and then start adding the rails and other details to it. It looks much better. I should have some pics in a couple days to post. :thumbs_up_1:

The new scratch built radar mast is done and installed. I think it looks much better and closer to correct now. Still needs some touching up and tweaking and needs the main radar added.

Finished up the radar and started on the sea base. Still need some flight deck netting and a couple other details on the ship and then time to work on the air wing and deck equipment.

Flight deck netting all in place. Still need a few minor details on the ship and then time for the air wing and deck equipment.
