USS Kittyhawk = 4.5m+ :o

Mind you, that makes finding a decent in-scale air group easier! ;D

Am I reading that right, they're only supplying the hull.   ???

Do they supply the island and other stuff?  I couldn't see anything like that on the site.

I showed mrs kitnut this and asked her where best to put the Hermes or Kittyhawk ----- it's not repeatable what she said ----- some sort of reference to a dark passage ----

Now where can I get references for the rest of it -----  ???
I wonder if they're considering a HMS QEII ---

At 4.5 meters instead of RC you could take people for rides!
