Nicely done Dennis. I still am amazed by those tiny planes and the other detail that really needs a magnifying glass to appreciate.  Thanks for sharing.

Outstanding, especially at that tiny scale.  Superb   :-))

As a ship, she isn't the most attractive, but the design ideas and construction of the vessel; pioneering for the American Navy make it a most attractive model. She fits so well into the period where carriers were not proper unless they had a labyrinth of structural steel showing along with an attempt to fit weapons anywhere vaugely sensible.

A job done well on your part Dennis, and I salaute your persistence with the less well cast parts of the kit that might have put some people off  :-))

I love this model and the attention to detail shown during the build - but I'd be terrified of transporting or even touching something so fragile!

Thanks for all the kind comments.  I have really enjoyed this build.  the model is solidly mounted.. some 2" screws are going up hard into that solid resin hull.  Yes, she is delicate, but seems compact.  I'll feel much better once the case is on.  Something I did notice was how much support strength for the deck when all those girders started coming together as a design for support...engineering even works at that tiny scale.  Regards,  Dennis

In scale, it is probably stronger as the etch scales out at 4 inches thick! That assumes it is .3mm brass sheet used.

Finally received my new display case from J-Display Case www.displaycasej.com , located in the US.  i am very thrilled with the high quality.  Very fair pricing, but very high shipping.  I can see why, the packaging is over the top in quality and safety.  Sorry for the low quality pictures, but you get the idea. I milled the base from Sapele wood. I'm happy.  :-)   Dennis

I agree Dennis, she looks perfect in her new see though home.

She's an all round darling of a model.

I have really enjoyed this build.  She was really a small aircraft carrier at around 500ft, compared to the Lexington I'm building now.  They just kept growing and getting bigger.  Floating cities, with enough firepower to do some nasty damage, or light a city in need.... (I like that part).  Dennis
