Hello dear colleagues! I repeatedly exhibit my model of an aircraft carrier “Enterprise” after reshooting a and the replacement of the description. A bit about the prototype.
The history of Enterprise aircraft carrier
USS Enterprise (CVN-65) US aircraft carrier. The first aircraft carrier with a nuclear power installation, it was commissioned in 1961. Thats the first and the only ship of its project, despite five more brothers planned for the construction. The total cost of Enterprise reached $ 451 million, and this was one of the reasons why the serial production of the series was not started.
It has the highest (342.3 meters) length among the warships in the world. The First, the Finest is one of the mottos of the aircraft carrier. One loading of nuclear fuel is enough for 13 years of service, during which the aircraft can pass 1 million miles.
It is planned for it to stay in the ranks until 2013.
Construction of model USS Enterprise CVN-65: strengths and weaknesses
Well, a little bit about the aircraft carrier model. The model was assembled during four months, the main challenges for this model were planes. Because they were very small. Everything else was quite alright. Some ask, why Tamia? Just, once having bought Star, I had to saw a lot. Then people advised me to try Tamia. I really liked the detailing, clear joints. People say: Pour glue into the box with Tamia model, shake it, and the model will assemble itself. The model was painted in the US Navy base color, as shown in the instruction. I was afraid of fantasizing I had not enough experience. I tried to make the shading on the superstructure and airplanes.
I painted the model using an airbrush with Tamia acrylic. The length of the model is one meter five millimeters, width – twenty centimeters. This is my second model ship.
