When I submitted my nomination to the SN thread I forgot to mention the Lindberg Essex being passed off as a CV 5 class. The Lindberg Essex is not too bad in itself. It has its shortcomings but with some work can be made into a presentable model; however passing it off as an Enterprise or Yorktown is just a thinly veiled marketing gimmick.
I was the guy that submitted the 1/350 Trumpeter Sullivans. I do have the kit in the stash and as you stated the bits are garbage; however the hull and basic structure can be saved. I am going to attempt to convert the kit into an Alan Sumner class DD. I am already accumulating replacement bits and a set of plans. Now all I gotta do is find some time.
Thanks for the summary; nice compilation.
