Hi Everybody,

That's USS Nimitz 1/350 with WEM PE parts full set and Starfighter decals for planes. Almost a year of work to depict the most famous aircraft carrier. I like the most models presenting models that is why I do not use weathering, rust, or worn out effects, only line effect to get details. I have placed also some pictures of deck vehicles and planes. She must be very impressive in real life...

How did anything take off or land - there's no space :shrug:

Impressive!  I have the Nimitz to build, no PE though.

 

Well worth a year's effort

Hi, I do admit, that there is a crowd on the deck but.... complete hangars' cleaning was announced by captain :)

Cats #3 and 4 look to be clear, so some aircraft can at least get off the deck. Maybe if enough of them do, there'll be room for a few to land back on! 😀 It'll help if they can strike a few below too.😉

That looks very nice indeed! What time period is it set in? Presumably this is the Trumpeter kit of Nimitz as she was built , but that's a later Radar Tower aft of the Island?

Great model and very impressive indeed.  I can assure she is equally impressive in real life.  I had the privilege of working with her in the aftermath of First Gulf War and I can tell you, landing little Larry Lynx in the middle of that enormous flight deck was one of the highlights of my flying career.  Somewhere I've got a photo taken just after this one that shows my cab on deck alongside the island and it looks lost!

Yes, that is the question I wondered.  It's an eclectic mix of aircraft with F4s, F14s, F18s, A6s and EA3s all together on the deck.  Certainly in '91, which was before the lattice radar mast was replaced with the solid one, the air group comprised F14s, F18s, A6s and EA6Bs.  But nevertheless, it's a fabulous example of naval air power at its best 👍

Hi Guys, I must admit that "eclectic" is the best word for the situation on the deck. During assembling, I was wondering, which planes to chose, earlier ones or later. But finally I decided to put a mix of them to present different types from different times to have them all. So lets keep the version that my model is from 90's having modern planes on the deck with some guests from the past visiting the ship again :)

@ Chewbacca, I really envy you the opportunity you had in the past, I am sure that she must be impressive!
