: I have been looking forward to this kit, and
: expect it is engineered in a similar manner
: as their Missouri, a kit I enjoyed building.
: How good is the fit on the two hull halves?
: Is the hull suitable for waterline display?
: I know that it should be OK, but looking
: back on Missouri it seemed that it was not
: going to lay flat enough, meaning that it
: tended to bow upward neat the bow.
: With Missouri I opted to go full hull, but
: with the impending release of a waterline
: only Yorktown from Trumpeter, my real wish
: is to do CV5 and CV6 was water lined running
: mates, and the thought of kit bashing a
: Trumpeter Hornet with their Yorktown may be
: on the horizon as well.
: Thank you in advance for your answers

: The Academy CV-6 arrived in yesterday's
: My initial inspection reveals a very nice
: kit. The hull looks nice, but I have not
: checked dimensions. One of the nicest
: surprises was the inclusion of gray plastic
: aircraft with molded-on props. No clear
: plastic aircraft! Hooray! The hull includes
: the degaussING cable.
: The instructions are clear and easy to
: follow. The kit includes paper masks for
: the horizontal surfaces painted in 20B and
: N250 stain.
: I am looking forward to this build and,
: hopefully, a new YORKTOWN (CV-5).
