USS Midway CV-41 (1991)
This is the US Aircraft Carrier USS Midway CV-41. Also known as "USS Rock n Roll" and "USS Neverdock".
About this creation
Here we have my lastest build ship, the Midway.
The Midway was build at the end of WW2 but doesnt join any combats.
The Midway was refited 2 times. First in 1957 and second in 1975. The Midway was decommissioned in 1992. The moc shows her (as far as i could manage) as she looks in 1991.
My Midway featured a full hangar deck and a small removeable part of the deck to reach the hangar.
I included an improved version of the moveable elevators as I already introduced at my Nimitz-carrier. They are now more stable.

At first i will have a short introduction to the airwing:
Even if the ship itself is the version from 1991, the airwing is more a mixture of different time periods, colored in the white-grey like used in the 1970s.
With this airwing there come 2 new planes: Vought A-7 Corsair II and the Douglas A-3 Skywarrior.

Now some pictures of the profile. They show the unique shape that make this ship to a strange-beauty and sametime one of the most ugly ones.
The building of the deck shape was really challenging and very interresting.

14. Finally a carrier comparrison with the USS Nimitz.


At least when finished the moc, I noticed that even in my moc you can see the origin of this carrier build-style in the era of WW2 and I could easyly rebuild it as she was original. :)

Today the USS Midway is a museum ship - moored in San Diego CA and can be visited.

Quoting P. Voranc Welcome back! I simply love it. It is great that you decided to build something slightly older (at least originally) compared to your other builds. The island itself is a masterpiece and you have managed to capture the shape of the flight deck perfectly. Midway class has always been one of my favourites...
Thanks for the comment. Oh yes the Island...i remember lots of hours and much more different solutions. :) the next ship will be definitive a non US-ship. ;)
