Thanks for B-36 info.  I like it.
In this case have to go non-folding.  Land, rearm, refuel, catapult (700 ft) takeoff. 
Doing phase 2 of major model room clean up and reorganizing.  Mega-carrier build on pause.  Back at it soon.

Lots of options here including a 1/700 B-36:  http://www.tomsmodelworks.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=52&osCsid=s8f5m6jj1uienec2eo35k45oo5


IIRC, Tom's Modelworks has their models printed by Shapeways.

Like that B-36.  Have to get at least one.  Check out how it fits on flight deck.
Took break from building to redo model room.  Better organized, better lighting, better access to building table.  Now back to Mega-carrier.
This is interesting.  Mixing Essex, Lexington, Saratoga bridge and funnel parts.  Building as separated assemblies.
Basically put aft of funnel section of Essex bridge on top of front section with Lex/Sara transition deck.  Now tall enough bridge guys can see around.
Getting my styrene sea legs.

Glad to hear construction is proceeding apace, Admiral!

I really like that transition deck idea and I can just about visualize it. Things like that really make ship builds for me.

Looks like you're full-steam ahead!
