USS Enterprise Carrier Boat

The United States Navy Aircraft Carrier CVN-65 Enterprise, also known as the "Big E", is the worlds largest ship and the first nuclear powered aircraft carrier. Webster defines the word Enterprise as meaning"Undertaking, Project, A business organization, Initiative, etc.", and the CVN-65 fits all of these definitions perfectly.

"Basic kit with room for additional improvements"
dconnor_81
Most modelers of military ships sooner or later tackle this model. Large size of completed model (almost 4 feet long) was major inhibitor for me but my wife gave it to me for Xmas and I loved building it. Good quality with great instructions, however there is no hanger deck, one of 4 elevators is simply moulded into flight deck, no handrails are provided, and aircraft lack clear canopies and have minimal decals (no squadron art for tail). I fabricated a lighted hanger deck, used an after-market photoetch set to add missing details and used Tumperter aircraft on flight deck with original aircraft used on hanger deck where missing detail is not apparent. With added details, I was pleased with the results.

"The Big E is a BIG kit."
davezz4 (Schaumburg, IL)
Very nice kit. With very good details. Represents the Big E as she was in the 1980's with the later island. Would recommend the photoetch kit for the railings and radars. The only thing lacking is the aircraft have basic details. The Tamiya or trumpeter add on aircraft and the photoetch set for the planes make the details match the ship. Only other downside is there is no hanger deck details. The hanger bay doors are all closed. The entire hanger deck would need to be scratch built.

 
"Massive!"
tjohnson4845
What else can be said about this kit that hasn’t already. This kit is Massive! While the out of the box kit is detailed, and beautiful, the missing hanger deck allows the opportunity for creativity.

 
"big kit"
