Kind of a slow week as I was busy with some other things this week. I was able to get the starboard walls and doorways mounted and detailed. The aft walls are detailed but still need to be mounted. Will be starting to paint and decal the long port walls and to detail the GSE bay tonight.

The hangar bay deck is finished. All walls mounted, deck markings and painting done, weathered/stained deck, and GSE area lighting done. I even added toolboxes and benches to the back wall of the GSE area. Here are numerous pictures. Will be starting the flight deck next. (Hangar bays to be filled with aircraft and GSE equipment later)

After 5 attempts I finally figured out how to do the landing light "meatball" It's difficult to get a good picture due to the brightness but it does look cool.

CVN-70 Project - After I cut off all the catwalks (have PE version) I put flight deck together and made sure it fit the hull. I then started the long process of drilling and routing the fiber optic deck lights. I have the rear approach line done and am working on the foul line. The approach line will use a white LED and the foul line will use a blue LED. I drilled the holes at an angle so the optic lines will lay flat. I also mount them sticking up. Once the deck is painted and detailed I will trim the optic lines flush. They will be nearly invisible until the lights are on. Once all the lines are installed I will make them look like overhead pipes then prime and paint. The hangar bay LED's will be mounted after painting. I will need to do the island before I install deck to hull so I can run the wires for the island lights.

Wolfman,
Very impressive work, just a little bit of criticism on one thing that is not correct in the hangar bays, your VLA's (slanted red & yellow) on your bulkhead mounted sponsons should have been black and yellow slanted strips because at night when the "soxs" were on the red was harder to distinguish from the yellow so for the platforms edging was black and yellow for easy reference for spotting the platforms as well as the general understanding that black and yellow always was used on all platforms extending away from the bulkheads.

The red and yellow were strictly for "warnings" like the drystores conveyers, weapons elevators, all the ballistic doors and the elewell round downs. Just that one thing I noticed was off, but your work is awesome and inspirational. The VLA's and aviators wings are fantastic, but where are the AB wings at?

Seriously though I'm very impressed with your work and I look forward to following this build. I would love to see your method for using fiber optics for the flight deck, are you going to light up the center line and taxi lights?

Happy Modeling

CVN-70 Project - I finished the runway optic lines and halfway done with the foul line. Have about 28 more lines to run. I have quite the bundle. It's going to be a while to get them lines up and laying flat.
Here is a preview of the lights (just used a table lamp to see how the pattern looks)

CVN-70 Project - All the fiber optic lines have been laid out. Starting to glue them down so I can route them.

So the runway and foul line optics have been laid and glued. Looks like I can light them with just 5 LED's. Runway in white and foul line in blue. Tonight I will run the bow lights then I need to route all the fiber optic lines so they are flat and aligned evenly. Hoping to have pictures of the deck lit up with LED's by weekend.

CVN-70 Project - All the fiber optic lines have been run and the LED's have been installed as the source. The pictures are the result. Note that I have not trimmed the fibers down yet since I need to paint and weather the deck before I can trim them flush. They do look very bright in the photo's due to the way the camera sees the light. Once trimmed the brightness will not be as bright.

CVN-70 Project - Spent the day setting up the hangar bay lighting. I just taped everything to see if I had the placement right. Here is a trial fit test.

Very impressive work on the flight deck and hangar. That's going to look very sharp once you're done.
