"USS Nimiz CVN-68 Aircraft Carrier--Plastic Model Ship kit"
Poor Instructions. Some of the Paint colors required are wrong. Plenty of airplanes included.

"curious on Decals ?"
I am not sure if a Flight deck decal sheet is missing or I'm I to hand paint all the landing lines on the flight deck. if I'm to hand paint them its no big deal..but there should be decals for all those lines.

"lack of proper # of propellers"
kit didnt come with enough props to finish model shafts but no props to go on them looks kinda shabby with only 2 props

Zeke (Thailand)
I was looking forward to assembling this model but I was totally surprise there are no decals for the flight deck. Detailing the flight deck will be time consuming. The full hull has a battery compartment. Nowhere is it mention that the ship could be R/C. The parts for the most parts fits. The instruction is very confusing.
