They could also use a F-15EJ-Kai with F110-GE-132 engines and the improvements of the F-15J MSIP.

Getting an early start are we?

In a platonic level. ;) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theory_of_forms

Yes.....  Have numerous carrier kit-bash concepts and numerous carrier kits in numerous scales.  Only don't have the time.
Being able to multi-task at multi-locations at the same time would help !

Random idea (which I may have already shared...):  Royal Malaysian Air Force F-15E in the scheme of their Su-30MKMs:

I decided ages ago I wanted to do the reverse - Su-30MKI or MKM in F-15E colors. Then again, I like simple paint schemes, they're hard to get seriously wrong.. :)

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Add AVEN (Axisymmetric Vectoring Exhaust Nozzle) and LOAN (Low Observables Axisymmetric Nozzle) elements to the exhaust nozzles to reduce observables and improve handling.  Then go to a composite intake structure with built-in RAM, as developed by Northrop and add a radar blocker, as proposed by Boeing for the X-32 production development.

Late 7/27/18 Correction: corrected ADEN to AVEN and corrected full name; ADEN was a vectoring 2D nozzle developed by GE and proposed for a X-29B rebuild of an X-29A; it only deflected in one plane.
