I thought that I would initiate the new thread for the Carrier Builders this year. I have to complete a CV-6 Enterprise Airwing and the Kittyhawk still. Next after that may be the Antietam.

I am taking a break from carriers for another kit or two, and then I am returning to Antietam.

Glad you went ahead and started it, I've been so busy lately that I forgot. :thumbs_up_1: :thumbs_up_1: I have a huge number of carriers in the works so I'll just choose one for this build.

I used the Dragon Essex for that time period. I think that the flight deck on that model is correct for an early Essex build. It only has the starboard cat.

I would agree with Ed on that one. Then the Ships&Co Intrepid. I plan on getting one of those as well. I am thinking about getting another ISW CV-9 and converting it into an SCB-27C Intrepid. Then I will make the Ships & Co SCB-125 into a Hancock. I still a little nervous about sending card info through email though so I will probably wait until Bill at Pacific Front gets them in stock.
