That's a huge configuration change, I wish you luck. They were entirely different ship classes.

Really looking the part with her flat top on! I'm following along.

In the pattern: Scale Shipyard's 1/48 Balao Class Sub! leaning out the list, we're down to that Tamiya P-38F/G to use the other nose art Exito Decal (in-flight for this one), & in keeping with MC's hydra theory I bought another F-5E to do in FROG camo! And I just got a Trumpeter 1/32 F/A-18F!

Finally, a photo did come through.  It took me down memory lane to when I was a child living on Alameda Naval Air Station, where USS Ranger (CVA 61) was home ported. My Dad was a Hospital Corpsman (HM1-HMC) on one of the carriers there, USS Hancock (CVA 19). They were extremely impressive ships!

Your model looks great so far!
