Wow - great minds think alike......
I'm finishing an ARII 1/800th scale Nimitz. I'm doing her as-built with Scooters, Intruders, Phantoms, Corsairs and Crusaders plus her first Tomcats. Oh yeah...also Skywarriors and Vigs. It's going to be full hull as they don't give you the option to do otherwise.
Yours looks great. What did you think of it? Any fit problems? I have the later Trump John Stennis. Haven't touched it yet.
