I remember my older sisters having these kinds of hairdos! Otherwise this build log will be interesting. I have a fond place in heart for the Big E.

With all those bridge windows, it's hard not to wonder what that would look like in clear . . .

Did the Tamiya Big E ever come with the B-hive? I'd swear back in the day I remember it having the old radar array...

In 1967 BigE had no ciwis or sparrow missile launcher on the forward part of ship.

I was thinking to myself looking at photos of BigE when she had that fire. Nobody has done a 1/350 model showing her after the fire. I will let you known what I will do.

I was assigned to the Enterprise in 1992 when it was going through a major overhaul in Newport News Shipbuilding. I drove up and down the street looking for the damned beehive so I could figure out where the boat was berthed. Little did I know that the beehive went away years earlier!

On the Workbench:

Tamiya 1:350 USS Enterprise (CVN-65)

Kinetic 1:48 C-2A(R) Greyhound

Kitty Hawk 1:32 T-28B

Awesome project! I scratchbuilt the details for the early Enterprise some 20 odd years ago. I think I used a piece of 1/32 F-15 radome for the beehive housing. The biggest pain in the rear was making all of the life raft buckets. I didn't know how to resin cast back then, but that would save you a whole lot of time. Make one and cast the rest! The Shapeways beehive looks really nice. Good luck with the project!
