A superb model kit to build the USS Kitty Hawk, one of the US Navy's Kitty-Hawk class Atlantic Fleet aircarft carriers, commissioned in 1965.
he aircraft carrier U.S.S. Kitty Hawk CV 63 entered service in April
1961 after a prolonged project based upon the Forrestal class and is
considered a carrier evolution. The distinct change of this new class is
the location of two of the four aircraft elevators in front of the
tower which serve as improvement to move planes around the flight deck.
Radar screens behind the towel make the tower "lsland" more compact.
During the last thirty years the Kitty Hawk has been altered
considerably. Especially defence armament and electronic equipment
up-dates keep the carrier in maximum use.
