    Oh yes. I am jealous because it would be OUTSTANDING for the model building I do.

    Don;t have a part...or need a new class...presto-chango, put in a 3D model of it and the material and you get it.

    He is getting amazing detail down at that small 1/350 scale.

    So what you are saying is it is possible for the tumours to stop growing and reverse. Eat right and exercise maybe tumour gone in a year.

    My following 1/350 scale 3D airraft shipped today:

    12 x Boeing FA-XX
    16 x Grumman FA-XX
    06 x MQ-23 String Ray aircraft

    I will add to that the following aircraft I already have:

    12 x F-35C Lightning II aircraft
    04 x E-2D Advanced Hawkeye aircraft
    04 CMV-22B COD aircraft

    A total of 54 aircraft for my modern airwing.

    I will buy the carrier within the next two weeks, and the various photo etch railing packages I will need, as well as the decals.

    I should start the project in about two weeks. when I get the aircraft in, I will paint a few of the 6th gen and some of the F-35s to set up for folks to see what we will be talking about.

    Another USS Enterprise is about to be built.

    When I finish her, I will have all three USS Enterprise aircraft carriers in 1.350 scale:

    USS Enterprise CV-6:

    Laid down: 16 July 1934
    Launched: 3 October 1936
    Commissioned: 12 May 1938
    Decommissioned: 17 February 1947

    USS Enterprise CVN-65:

    Laid down: 4 February 1958
    Launched: 24 September 1960
    Commissioned: 25 November 1961
    Decommissioned: 3 February 2017

    To be Launched: 2023-2024

    Look it dudes amazing, so nice ! Smiley appr├ęcie.PNG but for English :( i begg your pardon :)
    Right now i have see post as it from only 3 personns Jeff, AFB and Popeye

    Dear vesicles, i am no an expert which found " out " infos with others etc... i search alone to 100 % i am very very passionated but not a true expert, since very long time very young i have my 1st military mag interested by all armies, weapons less small arms prefer big guns :) and logicaly milit history especialy modern wars WWI particularly WWII especialy easter front i have a lot of things and also logicaly i am a big wargamer, boardgames since also very long time as it https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/3263/ukraine-43

    I have especially for China but i like and post for all armies yes enough very good infos coz i have time for search, big passion and a amazing member polyglot speaking especialy very good french also russian have sned me all her files i have before ofc but it was excellent infos all the bases etc... amazing Franco-Russe he left 3 years ago sudenly... damage !!! a Danish one of the best expert for China military sponsored for to be member on CDF ( and now by ex i udapte Chinese Navy OOB etc... ) and her speciality as me mainly ORBATS, TOE, units etc... i love it since always technical things also ofc but is my matter undoubtely I found myself with a gold mine and i have created KMZ files with the main bases also for all the main Armies, i can look very fast with it and it is in more nice with little symbols by ex fighter types for base hostings it etc ... used with GE i have yet posted an example here Chine Su-30-JH-7 Rgts.PNG
    Franco-Russe was able with a little lexicon to understand about... Chinese surely her main point especialy for matters less know as ORBATS, TOE, units etc... rarely mentioned and extremely rare difficult to find, a master for it !

    Also a lot of books, now links i note all on my excel files especialy for China difficult !

    To find again more with China you need 3 things time of i have, passion big and what I would call the hunt for news in relation with passion and luck of course.

    Here I wanted a little complement your great post ! to give you a little overwiew of myself :)

    Thanks so much for the reply. I do appreciate very much of your explanation and overview! I admire you guys for taking the time and do the extensive research. That does require so much passion.

    I got to say, Forbin's posts are usually pretty informative but extremely confusing due to the language barrier. French grammar structure is different from English so it often comes out as if the opposite.

    I am actually in France right now (visiting Carcassonne), I can't understand a lot of stuff people say even when they say it slowly....

    ...here's some pics of those aircraft set on the deck of my 1/350 scale Ronald Reagan:

    FA-XX-02.jpg FA-XX-03.jpg FA-XX-04.jpg FA-XX-05.jpg

    Now, they are just there to give folks a "feel". They will all be sitting on my new CVN-80, USS Enterprise. I will be ordering another 1/350 scale USS Nimitz and then rebuilding it over into a Ford Class...in this case the 3rd one planned, the USS Enterprise, CVN-80, which they have already cut first steel for.
