Yes it is strange no Forrestal kit in 1/700
You would think this would have been done a long time ago but for some strange reason never done. Plans for late era Saratoga are on the web. So many eras to choose from commission to Desert Shield/Storm.
I have a 1/720 kit but itís not the same and quality is poor but I keep it anyway . Hopefully one day I will have the time to scratch build all she needs
Another nice kit from Trumpeter. Level of detail excellent though I would say CIWS and life raft canisters are under scale. Same clear plastic jets typical of Trumpeter. Go 3D.
Sadly it does appear to be Trumpeterís last 1/700 USN offering for awhile.
Still waiting upon a late era 1/700 Forrestal class (think Saratoga)
