This project has me pondering something similar, maybe for the upcoming "Floaty" GB.  I've been looking at one of the 1/350 Littoral Combat Ships as the base for a 1/700 amphibious assault ship with a compliment of V-22s, CH-53s and AH-1Ws (no one makes F-35Bs or AH-1Zs in /700 yet).

Looking forward to this build progressing.  Looks cool so far.

Added the antennas and smoke dischargers. The DUKE antennas are warped so I need to heat them and try to straighten them out.

I really like the colorful plastic. I know it's wrong, but I'd be so tempted to leave them like that.

Nice progress!

The Batmobile kit is snap tight but some parts were really loose so they needed gluing but the majority of the kit is snapped together so I can take the pieces apart to paint everything later when it warms up in the spring. Gotta wait till late April into May though. We usually still get snow into April.

Looks like the progeny of a chance encounter between a Massey-Ferguson farm tractor and F-117 stealth.  :)

Never gave much thought to this subject as it was part of the Batman franchise but knowing now that it is available in 1:35th scale does pique my interest.  Maybe a companion vehicle to the Aliens franchise M577 APC?

It is pretty cool they did it in 1/35. I got mine a while ago when they were cheaper. They are now pretty expensive. It is a really nice kit but not for what they are going for now. I was looking for a second one but just not affordable anymore, to me at least.

Looks better with that trim, Admiral!

Now that your mega-carrier sits lower, it's easier for me to imagine a busy flight deck with lots of air ops going on.

Thanks for the great updates! I'm enjoying the ride immensely!

Holy shit, what have I missed?

And where am I? Where are my pants?

Oh fuck, I think I'm missing a kidney now.

If you want that kidney back, it's gonna cost you, pal.

Great to see you posting again, Mr Chicken. Your work is always an inspiration and I can't wait to see what you've been up to.

At that size keep the bow as is & just pop a twin/quad-40mm tub on either side of the leading edge of the flight deck & a couple out the front (with hatches back into the ship, of course) below deck level. She's way big enough to cope with that.
