Wow, pretty cool work, Mardis!!

I particularly like your detailing the hangar bay, but all your back dating, Tartar(??) launchers etc, looking really great!

Cheers,
Jan

Mardis,

that's an amazing amount of scratch work, and it looks really good!! Fantastic to see how you are bringing your model to life, here once more especially the internal area of the hangar bay!

Cheers,
Jan

Working on the fantaIL and hangar deck. The hull will not be that hard to do. Sponsons from the J.F.K are pretty close to America. The island is a different story. Gregg from Shapeways is making the island. I still have Kitty Hawk to do also,but working on two Supercarriers at the same time is no problem. Happy Modeling everybody!
