1/350 America

Recommended Posts

I took the J.F.K hull and flight deck and convert it into America. Lots of detail done to the hangar bay. I  had a guy from Shapeways design the island for me. It turn out great. Have photos of build here.mkWSh6T.jpgqUsHngr.jpgVYPG6PS.jpgy2j2OW1.jpgt1txR5g.jpgD3qOybi.jpgBwV1ew2.jpg5Y0OMIJ.jpg3C1bI9J.jpgRDvzXaX.jpgT1M6oVZ.jpgRcjSChn.jpg

Up at the angle just forward of the Cat 1 JBD, carriers have a mast with a weather vein at the top. What was unique about America's was it was painted with horizontal red and white stripes representing the flag.

I don’t know if you bought the JFK before the Kitty Hawk kit came out or not. FYI the America, Constellation, and the Kitty Hawk were all the same class (Kitty Hawk class). The JFK was a stand alone class. It was originally going to be a Nuc, but congress cut funding on the hull and made it conventional. 

Too bad you didn’t get the Kitty Hawk kit. It would have saved ya a lot of work. 😉

Thank You Guys! Still have a lot of work to do. I have to find someone to make the decals for the airwing for both America and Kitty Hawk.  I tried and fail 3 times.
