Fearures that will make for easy assembly are:
  • The flight deck will be a one piece laser cut lexan deck, thus avoiding seams, shrinkage, and fit problems.
  • The hanger sides are part of the hull casting to eliminate fit problems in this area also.
  • The cast resin catwalks and flight deck front piece interlock with the flight deck making for easy, fool proof assembly.
  • There are approx 205 individual parts in this kit, mainly armament and associated fittings.
  • The Decals (by Microsacle) will include markings for both Midway & FDR, flight deck stripes, and markings for the air group.
  • The relief etched brass photoetch sheet will have propellers & landing gear for the aircraft, the large flight deck crane, 20MM shields, Quad 40MM shields, the various radar antenna and electronic fittings, plus the usual railings and ladders. There is so much photo etch & Decal detail it takes 2 of each sheet to hold it all.
