    All the catapult speak is tiresome... good thing for some of you fellows popeye is retired from being a mod otherwise some of you would get a short vacation for caring on a useless argument.

    All I know in my heart of hearts is that the US Navy, engineers & technicians etc.., persons responsible for getting those catapults to work properly and nearly flawlessly on CVN-78 will do so..sooner than later.

    'nuff said.

    I completed my 1/400 scale model of the Sao Paulo today.

    Here's a few pics:

    The Thread about the entire NBuild pon SD is:

    1/400 Scale Model Build os Sao Paulo, A12

    One day it will be GREAT to see Gripens operating off of her...and off of a future, new Brazilian carrier.

    Popeye, this is an old French design (Clemenceau class) from the late 1950s. What Class US carrier does it remind you of?

    Asif, here's a much higher resolution version:

    This is a GREAT pic because it gives you a very good idea of the relative sizes of the two.

    Of course Izumo has now gone through its trials and been commissioned since this was taken...but the size comparison is good anyway.

    USS America, LHA-6, successfully completes final Builder's Trials


    82044568.jpg
    USS America, LHA-6, underway during builder's trials

    USS America, LHA-6, was commissioned on October 11, 2014. These last builder's trials were a part of he post-delivery agreement between the US Navy and the manufacturer and the manufacturer will be responsible for resolving any discrepancies noted between the agreed requirements and what the Navy actually got.

    After this, although the Navy may (and probably will) continue to get help from the builder, it will be on the Navy's nickel.
