HMS Flagg Custom Official Launch

So it has been years in the making. A lot of hard work. But, here it is ....

My USS Flagg custom .... but, as I am British, this one is called HMS Flagg!

I tried to make it more realistic based on the Nimitz class carriers but also holding true to the original toy.

11 feet long and 5 feet wide. She includes : 4 decks !

Flight Deck - Original Flagg stickers (from rattlerrepros.weebly.com).
3 working self retracting landing arrest wires.
2 steam catapult tracks with blast deflectors.
3 level Island with pri fly deck as well as the bridge etc.
2 elevators.

Hanger deck for aircraft storage and maintenance.

Current aircraft fleet =
6 custom F14 Tomcat/Skystrikers in Black Aces and (when stickers arrive) Jolly Roger squadron livery (toyhax.com)
2 F/A 18 Hornets (on the look out for more if anyone has a spare) also in Black Aces squadron livery.
1 Russian SU-27
1 Seahawk Helicopter.

Cabin deck (middle) consists of:
Medical centre with operating theatre
Canteen/galley
Briefing Ready room and Lounge
CDC - Combat Direction Centre (Ops Room with some BFB artwork)
General Hawks Office.

Lower Deck Consists of :
Nuclear power engine room
Weapons magazine Storage
Assault boat & Admirals Launch (Swordfish) bay
WHALE bay
Dorm
Brigg.

I still need to paint the cabin furniture and build the crew more but otherwise it is mostly done.

Here are a few pics (if they work). Hope you enjoy. Might try a video too. Would love your comments.

My word that is amazing!!!!!
When confronted by a difficult problem you can solve it more easily by reducing it to the question. How would the Lone Ranger handle this?
