Here are some images of Tamiya's 1/350 scale Newport News Shipping USS Enterprise CVN 65 aircraft carrier. Christened in 1960 and still in service to this day The USS Enterprise was the worlds first nuclear aircraft carrier. The Enterprise is scheduled for decommissioning in 2013. That's 53 years! If you would like to read more on the Enterprise check out Wikipedia's write up on it. This large model is over a meter long and was a very satisfying build. My only complaint is that when I purchased this model about 9 years ago it cost me $200 bucks, now you can pick it up for around $140. Oh well that's the way it goes sometimes.
