One of the first very high resolution models of the Aircraft Carrier, CVN-76, the U.S.S. Reagan. The cutaway has been removed on this model but you will get everything that can be seen externally on the ship (plus the hangar bay). The model was completed from plans and has some upgrades over the last posted version. This model was designed for high resolution print (appearing in Maxim Magazine and Popular Mechanics) but has separate layers and pivots for many of the moving/animatable parts. The model comes with deck equipment including: deckcrane, bomb carts and forklifts. It also comes with medium resolution 'ready' and 'stowed' versions of the F18 which are moveable but non-poseable. Only the F18C is included. These were intended to be cloned to produce a full deck complement.
This is the outer external model of the aircraft carrier suitable for visualizing and rendering images of the externals. A new model, Product ID: 760262, has been added that includes all the decking shown in the cutaway images.
The model was designed for high resolution print. Full texture maps are included (including illumination maps and perimeter lighting for night operations) and UV maps should now import directly into 3DS as well. IFW2 plug was used for the ship's hull plating and you may have to substitute a similar plug-in.
Elevators, F18s, deck equipment, Sparrow and RAM positions, blast deflectors as well as all major components of the ship are on separate layers for easy animation or for reducing poly count if you don't see them in your image.
An OBJ version of the model is now included. The model is very large and the .obj model had to be partitioned but should load various parts of the whole ship into position. Logical items are split into 'parts' and 'surfaces' for selection and animation. Reference images were only rendered to 400 x 400 pixels at the time this was produced.
