Don't think so. Dragon made a lot of promises including a Gyatt DDG 1 in 1/350 scale, then they just seemed to lose interest in ships altogether. The list of what they were supposed to be issuing is long, another like Gyatt, is a 1/350 Atlanta.

I think the most that can be hoped for is the re-issue of existing kits. Look elsewhere for Enterprise would be my advice.



Thatís the troubleó there is no "elsewhere" to look for a 1/700 CVN 65 Circa 1969 with the bee-hive radar array. To my knowledge nobody else makes one. .

Does anyone know if Dragon actually released the 1969 version of the USS Enterprise they advertised back in 2017? I bought their USS Long Beach in anticipation of the Enterprise Kit, (and maybe a Bainbridge too?). Did I miss the Enterprise? I think JAG made a Bainbridge (a pricey one at $78), but there are some other kits of her class that could be converted. However the Enterprise, like the Long Beach, is one of a kind.
