Hornet had different bow flight deck so bow and supports had to be reworked forward. 20 mm layout was different as well as hangar deck bulkheads. All that had to align on the Enterprise hull which if I recall the forward beam (flare) on Enterprise hull was ever so slightly larger than the Hornet which created more alignment problems of flight deck.
Trumpeter offered a new hull with Enterprise and Yorktown but that was the widening of the bow flare forward and not shear of bow. Building full hull 1/350 or the 1/700 Hornet full hull (which was an option in that kit) then you had a problem as the bow shear ended at the anchors and then dropped straight down. In 1/700 waterline our hulls end at just below anchors.
After study I decided to build Hornet straight out of the box. Yes the bow flare forward was different and a little more accurate on Enterprise/Yorktown but not by much to motivate me to take on the task of kit bashing.
Tom got the hull right but neither the Trumpeter flight deck or Tomís flight decks or even the old flight decks from HP align properly on his lower hull without masking the 5Ē38 guns at some point. Heck HPís flight decks had the same problem on HP hulls. I know I own them all including Tamiya and Academy.
