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?

To be conventional powered with WW2 AA guns.  USN '46 is concept.  Getting these from WW2 USN 1/700 kits.  Preparing for prolonged war in the Pacific.
If you're going with WW2, the ceilings of the hangar decks were lower that modern carriers, so, having doubled the size of the deck, you really have about 3 times the height in available hangars. Having 3 hangar decks visible throught he hangar doors near the lifts woul dbe really cool.

She also sits very, very high. Notwithstanding that you've made the cuts, maybe lower the freeboard some more? Make the flight deck closer to the water?

Looks something like a rhinoceros beetle ... or a dung beetle ... like that. ;)


I was thinking it looks more like a crab.

I got a little more done. Added the wheels and the front suspension armor. This is really cool looking. Wish I had a second one to keep it stock.

Manually cut hull.  Fortunately is not brittlish plastic prone to cracking.
Electric rotary small fine tooth blade might have worked out.  Cuts can go bad quick that way, so stayed with manual. 
Find that sawing improves with practice.  Used two saws depending on cut position.  Went quicker than expected.
Per hull markings, instruction sheet, CV-67 photos is cut at waterline.

Took pictures next to Revell 1/720 Essex class waterline kit.  So is pinch small.
With cut successful can go on to build mega-carrier.  Need to round up 1/700 donor kits.
Also have to finish model room redo.
