Chris Vandegrift Thanks Greg, you're too kind! One of the guys on the FSM forum GB I'm in is doing a 1/800 carrier. He's done camo on the planes and just did folded wings on the E-2C Hawkeye...dang those are tiny planes. I'll be looking out for your build.

Greg Baker This is looking good, Chris! I love how you've got it all wired up with the lights. I've done some lights/motors on my builds, but nothing on this scale. Watching very closely.
You might have to wait a while on my carrier build... and one of them is going to end up with tank treads instead of a lower hull, so you might not recognize it.

Chaz Gordon This one that has been on my someday list for a long time, although I'm more likely to get one of the trumpeter Nimitz class kits, as it would be an in-service carrier for a while. I'm more hoping Airfix will release a QE class carrier in 1/350, which I'd buy immediately.
Chaz Gordon I'd be inclined to leave the planes unglued, so you can re-configure your Airwing as the mood takes you.

Chris Vandegrift You know, I'm inclined to agree with you! you also got me thinking about the people. I took a picture from straight over the model. Will print that on photo paper, laminate it, then cut the letters out and glue people to the laminate! Should work the treat without losing the look of the flite deck, or messing up the flite deck with glue.

Chaz Gordon Like that Idea. You have many hours of painting blue details on tiny sailor uniforms
