These are some of the parts acquired for a new commission for a 1/350 Nimitz 1978.Extra sets for aircraft details, extra decals from Starfighter decals, and also the WEM etch set .Also to come in a few weeks , some extra resin tractors, and about 300-400 resin figures.This is going to have LED's lighting up the hangar bay, the landing strip on deck, various smaller lights around the hull and lighting around the numbers on the island and of course the bridge windows.Aircraft will be detailed as much as possible with open canopies, and some extra weapons load that i ll have to scratch built myself since in 1/350 none makes any .The seascape it will be close to the last picture as possible.Needless to say the base will be humongous as it will have to be at least 150cm in length and over 70cm in width with enough space for a control panel with all the switches for the various LED's around the ship.Once i finalize the wiring , number and positioning of the LEDs i will proceed in designing the base itself.This is the biggest project yet , and it will take some time to complete , but i am pretty certain it will be a showstopper once finished .Am also certain , soon as i finish it, someone else will ask for another one just like it all over again...


  1. Hi Costas. I can't wait to see the first pictures of this mind-blowing built you're planning here. I have a 1/350 Trumpeter Nimitz on the shelve, too. Started to convert it to the USS Ronald Reagan. That's nothing compared to what you are planning, though. Please keep us posted.

  2. Hi Lutz.
    I am waiting for the weather to warm up a bit so i can start work on it as due to its sheer size its been located to a different place were there is no heating of any sort.So i am hoping to start work this spring at some point and finish it by coming Autumn.
