New Review: USS Carl Vinson

Recommended Posts

USN Super Carriers and since I wanted a water line model, I added Coastal Kits 1/700 water base that was reviewed previously.

I broke the build into separate parts- hull, air wing, flight deck Italeri has released several versions of the US nuclear carriers in 1/720 scale and this latest rebox release represents CVN-70, the USS Carl Vinson which is notably as the carrier to dispose of Bin Laden's body along with supporting the current war on terror. I am big fan of the carrier too as most know as my son was stationed on her for five years.

Inside the box, there are 207 parts molded in gray plastic with a large decals sheet printed by Cartograf. The air wing for the ship consists of four- F-14's. one E2C Hawkeye, one SH-3 Sea King, six SH-60's, two A-6 Intruders and twenty one F-18C's. More later one those. There is an option for full hull or waterline also. There is a little flash around some of the smaller parts but it is very minimal.
