1⁄700CVN76 USS Ronald Reagan
USS Ronald Reagan CVN76…Ronald Reagan became president of the United States in 1981. He inherited a military that was shrinking and in bad shape to possibly battle the Soviet Union. He started out by rebuilding and his main target was the Navy. He announced to the world his intentions to build a 600 ship Navy.
This is the Italieri USS Ronald Reagan in 1/720. I constructed the rear part of the hangar, plus added extra details in the hull bays , were visible in order to add some depth. Added some extra detail on the bridge. I painted the planes overall grey 'ala' low visibility camo scheme and added some extra fuel tanks and replace their undercarriage. I glued about 150 figures on the deck as I wanted to have a busy feel and also made up some small trailers used for ammo transportation, refueling etc. The sea was made with silicone and I recreated the bow wave with a mixture of silicone, painted cotton, to give the extra volume.
