Very nice work, Mardis!

Your progress, and all your detailing to the hangar bay, look really great!

Cheers,
Jan

When I was in the Navy, I was on the Chicago (CG-11) in the mid-late '70's. The Connie and the Kitty (along with the Long Beach and sometimes the Enterprise) were moored at North Island in San Diego. When we deployed overseas we went with the Kitty Hawk task force. Where ever she went we followed. Make them look good modeler

My round sponsons should be here next Sat. In the mean time I've work on the port side detailing the openings and redoing the small sponsons under the large over hang sponsons. I'll post the work tomorrow.

Just put in the hangar deck. Starboard side has not much detail because of the port side aft opening. Waiting on the older sponsons for the missile launchers from Greg of Shapeways.

I'm not doing a full hangar bay. Just enough to see through the openings.

Mardi,

Nice job on the interior detail. The 3D printed parts look great. Looking forward to seeing them incorporated into the build.

nothing is glue down. I'm not going to do a full detail job of the hangar bay. Just enough to see thru the openings. Also no lights. I have too many builds at this time. Some photos.

Hi Mike, The kit is the 1/350 Kitty Hawk CV-63.What I'm doing is backing this ship to Nam era. CV-64 is the sister to CV-63.They were both CVA during Nam. That all change when both had antisub planes on board. J.F.K. started out as a CVA also. But all change in 1975 when Vikings came on board.

Sorry for the stupid question as I'm confuse by your title and what you are doing. I'm still learning about these carriers...you are back dating a CV-63 Kitty Hawk to CVA-64 Connie or are you back dating the CVA-67 to CVA-64? Isn't the CVA-67 same as CV-67 JFK? TIA

Either way, I'm following along to see whats happening here

Mike
