WIP 2, The USS Enterprise CVN-80
My second WIP for the my new carrier, the USS Enterprise (CVN-80).
About this creation

One of the two packages, that, without which, this MOC would not be possible.


Contents!


So, something new. This is the mast that will be located on the top of the bridge; on the very top you can see one of the many radar units located on the ship. I do plan on having the "busy" look of the mast, with cables connected to it (see my Green Energy MOC if you are interested in seeing how I plan on achieving this; its the same as the high tension power cables).


Construction for the widest part of the bottom of ship. Sixteen studs at the waterline.


Some assorted pictures of my new collection of light grey!








Thanks for looking! I would like to give a shout out to Ed Bangor, who, on my last WIP, gave me some vital numbers that, without which, this ship wouldn't be possible, so thank you Ed! Also, if you are interested in carrier, I would recommend for you to head over to Locutus 666's page; he is undertaking a similar build (but with much greater skill and expertise than I!).

Quoting Halhi 141 Interesting to see the building process of this. That's a lot of 2x2 inverted slopes!
Yup; over 200 of 'em! I didn't use all of them, which means I have to find something to use those on.....

Na, dont worry. Just to let you know that I build my CV-65 on LDD a couple of weeks! I would recommend to start with building the deck-section. Set up the complete deck shape then continue with the hull. My deck section consist of 3 levels of plates (one of them are the tiles).

Quoting Locutus 666 Answering your question: I used about 236 2x2 dark bluish grey tiles. But additional to them the deck consists of a couple of 1x1s, 1x2s, 1x3s, 1x4s, 1x6s, 1x8 and some 2x4s if I remember right. Besides that, the airstrip consist of different white tiles mixed with a few orange. Hope this helps. I think 430 2x2 tiles can cover the deck but its the corners and betwen other stuff you cant use 2x2s will be difficult.
Thank you. I am worried, honestly, about this project. I mean, the beam of this is larger, so, I don't how it will compare. I personally hope I don't have to ditch the project; only time will tell.

Quoting Locutus 666 The mast is exciting! An interessting construction! I do really look forward to your completed project! You will use light bluish grey for the hull? I will use the old light-grey.
Thanks for the comment! My tiles are all in light-bluish grey, and I think that parts are much cheaper, and easier to find, in light bluish grey than in that old grey.
