CVN-80 Air Wing . Another WIP, though this isn't titled a WIP, mainly because, well, this is mostly about aircraft!
I would like to, in advance, apologize for the yellow-tinted pictures; it was either that or completely wash it out; and I took these pics rather quickly, so, try and bare with it for a little while! .
Its a North Korean dream!
These are my F-18's, in formation. They represent the Super Hornet version; as by the time this ship becomes operational, they will be the only type of Hornet in service.
Close up on the bug. I built two types; two with a white 1x2 with a bar, with the other six (if my math is correct this time) built with light bluish grey 1x2 pieces with a bar.
The back, in all its glory.
...in this poorly light photography, taken by a camera, the view of a fleet of F-35C's can be seen, tucked into the shadows, due to the large cost overruns.
Is it a bird? No. Is it a plane? Eh. Is it a plane that has more controversy than the food in my school's cafeteria? Yes!
Let me make a note of something; I built one prototype of this plane weeks ago. I had no idea that Locutus 666 has the SAME TAIL design! It is, genuinely, a coincidence; neither one of us copied each other. But even so, I am giving a shout out to the one, the only, the master builder, Locutus 666!
Can you spot the difference?
Yes, I kinda ran out of light bluish grey 1x1 hook pieces, so. Instead, I got creative! These aircraft have special tail colors, to match their own squadrons! Yeah! (I'm not a rainbow warrior!) Also, they have different colored exhausts, because one of these planes will be positioned, ready to go on one of the EMALs catapults. Ooh, ahh!
And finally, we are here with my personal favorite of the lot, the E-2C Hawkeye! Simply love how this turned out!
Wow (pronounce with a short 'o'), I took a nice artistic shot! Score!
The bottom of this marvelous machine. To be clear, if you wish to use any designs you have, or about to, see, please, just a little mention folks, and you can continue forwards. Its all I ask!
Alright, I am going to shut up now, so you can enjoy some nice views of the entire fleet arm.
Alright, you sat through that. I'll reward you with one (final) WIP shot!
Wait what! No more WIPs? Is the carrier not being built?
No. Don't panic (if you are that into this), I just feel that I have given enough of the MOC away; adding another WIP will benefit no one, as it would show you, essentially, the final MOC, and we don't want that yet! To keep some secrecy, this will most likely be your last look of this carrier in construction. It will be completed; I am working at light speed to get it up and running.
That's it fellas! I did neglect to take pictures of the drones that will be on board the ship; guess you will have to wait for those! Yeah, my memory ;-(
Anyways, to end on a happy note, I am pleased to say that my group, the International Fan of Lego Debate Club:
Is up and running. A glitch, however, makes it look like it is not being used.
Check out Locutus 66's version of the USS Enterprise, CVN-65, in 1/350 scale, here !

This MOC, this, little WIP consisting of small aircraft, as made the "Most Discussed" section of "Explore Tab"! Thank you all so much for this achievement and your support!
