If, however, you have the 1978 Eisenhower, the conversion can still be done, because the basic hull in all those Trumpeter Nimitz class kits is the same thing. (And as Andrew points out, none of them is going to be ideal for your purposes...all will require work if you are into great amounts of accurization.) What you will lose by using a 1978 version kit is all sorts of useful mast, weapons, electronics and aircraft parts that would be in the newer version that are decidedly not in the 1978 version, so you will have to obtain from elsewhere.
