Re: Wow - great minds think alike......
Hi Don. I had a bit of trouble with the flight fitting on the hull. I actually ended up with a warp on the stbd side just forward of the island. It's noticeable when you sight down the side. I used Eduard figures, although some were probably Loose Cannon and Flyhawk from my misc parts box. I also used Gold Medal's Nimitz set for the railings and ecm/radar/etc. I didn't use their safety netting - lazy I guess. The big issue with the Trump kit is the 600+ parts. Very tedious build with lots of tiny parts that the carpet monster developed an appetite for. I did enjoy building it as there were no major issues EXCEPT parts ID. I ended up buying two Nimitz class CD's from Roy Bean to ID many of them as painting instructions were lacking for lots of the parts. The CD's were an excellent resource.
