This is the 1/350 island that Greg of BanconFist made for me. Man went out of his way to do this. If any of you decide to do a America CVA-66 here it is.

impresive work. One day you will have to line all your carriers up and take a group foto. I plan to do another Nimitz as the first one got flipped. Bought the hangre deck side panels from shapeways and have that done. Was able to find one of those old "beehive island" kits for my enterprise for whenever I get around to that. Now building a 35th scale train dio. The BR52 with 8 cars loaded with vehicles. Still need to finish detailing two flatcar build a panther tank finish a boxcar and a gondola then detail those with figures. It is progressing nicely. Retirement has been very busy for me so far with everything else I am working on. LOL wait til I start my model railroading layout
