Hello Ship mates,
I am nearly finished upgrading my Nimitz to how she should be. I was never happy with the carrier the way I had built her in fact I just lost interest in her. However that is now changing. I have completely stipped her flight decks down and also pulled out all of her R/C gear that I was not happy with. I guess as we build more models our work improves and that is what has happened to me.
Nimitz is now in the process of being converted to 2009 as the first all Hornet carrier along with associated aircraft. I believe my work on the aircraft has improved considerably also which helps the cause. I have acquired a 4 x Prop gearbox which will bring her into correct drive trains along with a twin rudder system. I will post a picture now to see if my camera settings are aok if not I will start taking some photographs to show you yer upgrades from nearly scratch.
