Thanks for the information Charles, it comes as a reinforcement to my decision not to replace them, I just don’t have enough of the right kind of catwalk during this deployment, but I have removed all of the side walls to replace with thinner plastic sheet and rails as required. This also allows me to do a little work on the hose reels and maybe some small amount of pipe work, but mostly it allows me to modify the catwalks, as it seems from what I can see, that the kit is simpler than those used in her last cruise.
Anyway thanks again for the advice. I’ll post photos of my work shortly

I don't know if this is the right section, but does anyone know if the Nichimo 1/500 Enterprise can reasonaby pass for 1964? I like the diversity of the airwngs that year.

Hi Cynthia,

It looks like it has the correct Island so if it is not accurate for that time period, it could probably be made to be accurate for that time period with a minimal amount of work. Details like the mast and sponsons. I also like that period for the various flavors of aircraft in the air wing.

Good Luck,

Mark

Can anyone tell me how wide the boot stripe is? Seems odd but I’m having the hardest time finding a reference. Dry dock pics have been at odd angles so not sure scaling it works well. Tried searching here and across the forum with no luck. Thanks in advance for the help. Chris

The Nimitz and enterprise hulls are almost the same. You can use the Nimitz as a reference.

Excellent, thank you!
Dang that’s a big stripe. 11mm in 350 scale. Way bigger than the 4mm on the Tamiya kit.

Something I've noticed is that boot stripes change over time. Back in the 60's they were thinner. Not sure if the navy's standard has changed, or if it's solely due to increasing tonnage after each refit/upgrade.

Hi All
Returning to this great hobby after may years absent.
I decided to go all in and get underway (pardon the pun) with the Tamiya Enterprise.
After reading many inspirational build logs (such as DWD) I'd like to attempt to put a hanger deck into my ship.
My question is, could anyone recommend the thickness of styrene need for the deck and bulkheads. I'm thinking I'd need a reasonable thickness for the deck to prevent sagging.
Appreciate any advice

Ken

I used 0.080” for my deck and 0.030” for the bulkheads. I picked up Tom Pope’s plans for the hangar bay and they were well worth it.

Does anyone have a good overhead picture of the flight deck at night? I am setting up my plan for lighting my carrier and am finding limited night shots. Would like to have some good references before I start drilling holes and figuring out the lighting overall. Thanks!

It's not Enterprise, but here is the lighting diagram for CVN-71. I imagine Enterprise is at least somewhat similar.

gjholmes77 I would agree. This should work well for my needs. Thanks!

Where did you get Tom Pope's plans for the hangar? I wouldn't mind getting a set myself.

I downloaded these build photos a while back and lost track of the build thread. I believe they were from this site, can someone lead me to the thread please?

Thanks in advance.

@gjholmes77 & @Themongoose,

The Floating Drydock has that same single-page flight deck lighting diagram for the Enterprise for $0.75.

https://www.floatingdrydock.com/more.htm#FD

I wish I could find the original because the 75 cent one is in pretty bad condition. I redrew it in Visio so I could read it better, but I obviously can't publish something I purchased. If anyone knows where to get the originals, that would be great.

-Frank

That would be by Alberto Hernandez Rubio, and he's posted it on Facebook (might be elsewhere on this forum as well, but would have to dig around): https://www.facebook.com/groups/2050407 ... 510443503/
