Re: 1/720 CVN-70
The main mast is the kit mast with PE additions of rails, ladders, and antennas.
Having only recently completed my own build of an Italeri Ronald Reagan, this subject "resonates" with me. While I am satisfied with what I did, mine did not turn out nearly as good as this! (Looks like an aftermarket PE main mast? And I see PE railings. Mine lacks this sort of refinement.)
Nice job; thank you for posting!
The building of the Italeri 1/720 CVN-70 air wing continues. I have the SH-60ís, E-2Cís, and the F/A-18Cís completed. I like that Trumpeter molded the aircraft in clear but it does make them difficult to see while building. The photo of the SH-60 on deck looks great with the light showing thru. The F/A-18's unpainted look like a squadron of aircraft from Paradise Island (think Wonder Woman LOL) I still have the F/A-18Eís and the deck tractors to complete. The first order of the Shapeways 3-D printed deck tractors somehow were damaged during shipping. Did not see the damage as the shipper just sent an email. I contacted Shapeways and they contacted the shipper then sent a replacement set which arrived in perfect condition. They have awesome customer service! Should have this project completed by the end of next week.
