    Hello all,

    Is there anyone that added ballast come up with a good number? I have to guess here at my place before I take it to the lake to run it and I need to have a ball park number.

    Thank you,

    Hello all,

    I am looking for a display case to protect the Nimitz when she's not in the water. Does anyone know when I can get such a case?

    Thanks

    Maiden run and she looks great. I need to configure for a bit less ballast as she is low in the stern. She is a bit top heavy, but not bad. I have replaced the single ESC with twin units configured so I can twist the ship.I have added the rotating radars and a sound control unit that plays 60 minutes of aircraft carrier sounds. I am looking forward to continuing to detail her and add the deck vehicles and crew.

    When I was in the Navy in the 80s the ship would rust in about 5 days at sea. We painted constantly while in port. Believe me nothing really matched.
