USS Carl Vinson 1/800

I was 13th (junior high) years old when I made my first full paper scratchbuild US Aircraft Carrier, it was USS Dwight E. Eisehower (CVN-69). This time it's USS Carl Vinson (CVN-70) 1/800 The USS Carl Vinson (CVN-70) is a United States Navy Nimitz class supercarrier named after Carl Vinson, a Congressman from Georgia. She was commissioned in 1982 and carries F/A-18 Hornets and F/A-18E/F Super Hornets as well as surveillance and other aircraft. Carl Vinson can carry 85 planes and 5,500 personnel. Traditionally, few ships of the United States Navy were named after a person who was alive at the time of the christening, but recently the number has increased; the list includes Carl Vinson, Hyman G. Rickover, Arleigh Burke, John C. Stennis, Bob Hope, Ronald Reagan, Nitze, Jimmy Carter, and George H. W. Bush.

A member of the United States House of Representatives for fifty years, Carl Vinson was, for twenty-nine years, the Chairman of the House Naval Affairs and Armed Services Committee.en.wikipedia.org

  2. Great idea!

    But, Why 1/800 and not 1/700 to be compatible with other ship models?

  3. I just follow the Plamo kit standard scale, if you look Tamiya, Hasegawa, or Academy product the US Carrier fit on 1/800 but sometime 1/720, while the Jap WW2 carrier fit on 1/700.Thanks for your advice
