I love the avenger... I think ill build that next, now that i think of it... But, I think a good carrier plane to start with (If you are) is the wildcat... it has a relativley easy to build fusalauge, plus you dont need to make up excuses for no wheel well covers!

AGGHH!! Tomas! HAHA you stole my carrier idea! Im working on a scale uss enterprise!!! Although, a minifig scale would be around 20.5 feet long, mine is only about six.

The enterprise did carry dauntless, devostator, and wildcat aircrafts for most of the war.

Well isn't that odd. My carrier isn't going to be 20 feet long either. I'll probably settle for 2 or 3 yards, by my rough estimation, the flight deck will be about 3 times the length of the superstructure, and about three times as wide. And on the topic of aircraft, another common type aboard the BIG E were Wildcats, and I've built a wildcat now. Its pretty basic in design, I wanted to kepp it small to fit the peramiters of my carrier. One drawback is I couldn't get all the design features I wanted into the design, mainly, The wings can;t fold up, but I wanted the design to be mass produceable, so I kept it simple.

Im not sure how you built your Wildcat but if you used a similar building technique like i did on the wings of my F4U or A6M5 Zero you could easily make them fold up....

I couldn't make a good carrier airplane mostly because of lack of blue parts, did they use any other color?

I'm not sure. Let me see.
I'm pretty sure they used a bit of grey in some of the planes, try it out.
