I see you created a different album. You will not evade me tho🙂 Awesome work so far. This build will be an indispensable reference when I attempt to convert a WWII Essex to a cold war one in 1/700

Glad you like it! I had some issues with the old one so I thought it'd be simpler to start over with a better organized list. But my next project is like yours - I'm doing a 1950 Oriskany from a Dragon Princeton. My goal is to finish this project by end of June, and then start on that. But it'll be simpler as a waterline model.

Martin, I am almost done with my double build of CV-31 as it appeared in 1945 and in 1968 (angled deck). There is an album for that if you want to follow.

I did some research and found out that this photo was taken on June 9, 1944 in San Francisco after refit and heading to Pearl Harbor, these kind of transportation operations were pretty common when CVs were being transferred from one port to another. They still do actually, modern US Navy Carriers carry the cars etc. of their crew when their ship changes their base.
