Working on the fantaIL and hangar deck. The hull will not be that hard to do. Sponsons from the J.F.K are pretty close to America. The island is a different story. Gregg from Shapeways is making the island. I still have Kitty Hawk to do also,but working on two Supercarriers at the same time is no problem. Happy Modeling everybody!
