"USS Nimitz"
abbattior199091
My model is in the process of being converted into the USS Abraham Lincoln CVN-72 but there are still some points that are relevant to all versions. The hull comes in upper and lower halves and there is a baseplate included so you can build it as a waterline model. The flight deck comes in three pieces and requires careful fitting to reduce the seams. There is also a hangar deck but no equipment, bulkheads, fire doors or conflagration stations at all. The hangar bay doors look nothing at all like the real ones. The kit ones look like roller doors whereas the real ones are large vertical panels. If you are building any ship of the class after 1980 you will need to update your aircraft accordingly but Trumpeter has foreseen this and makes sets of aircraft to update this and other carrier kits. If you are going to build this kit to represent other ships of the class or the Nimitz at a later point in her service I would strongly recommend buying the White Ensign photoetched sets. These have different exterior parts and details for other ships of the class and some corrections like the LSO platform which isn't even in the kit itself. I served on the Lincoln from 1991 to 1994 so getting it right is important to me.
