    This really is a superb mind blowing model. You've knocked this one way out of the ballpark. The "imperfections" in the Hull are great. When I used to sail, and come up relatively close to Navy ships, seeing the buckled, weld seams, really showed them to be the work horses that they are. This model really is so many models. I think I counted something like 24 aircraft on her deck! That is persevering, and determination at it's best, and it shows. Really excellent! :)

    Hi there thanks for comments and a link to the http://www.carrierbuilders.net
    At this time you see how i did the elevators.In this model the elevators are just simply without any details...such as reinforcing and supporting structures underneath of elevator therefore Armed only in millimetre paper and pencil ..;)i designed all that based mostly on pics of Sara and other forrestal class ships.
