The USS Reagan for the Virginia Air and Space Center and Popular Mechanics Magazine. The ship itself, was undergoing its 'Tiger Cruise' and the image was printed in Popular Mechanics and a 21 foot long version is on display at The Virginia Air and Space Center. The model here, is the model used to produce that cutaway work. It is a highly detailed model of the exterior and interior of a Nimitz class aircraft carrier from plans.
* A new aircraft complement and deck equipment update have been added. The aircraft update includes low-mid resolution, gear down and flying configurations of the F35C, F18F and F18E. A total of 6 aircraft models (in LWO, OBJ and FBX formats). The deck equipment update includes 4 different tow carts, a huffer cart, forklift, deck crane, bomb carts, aircraft ladder and wing ordinance missiles (see additional thumbnails).
This model now contains OBJ and FBX versions. This package contains cutaway and non cutaway versions of CVN76, USS Ronald Reagan, aircraft carrier. It is now in 3 formats; LWO, OBJ and FBX. The images folder contains all the necessary images for the 3 formats.
* Each format has a complete 'skinned' model similar to the other aircraft carriers you'll find here at Turbosquid and identical to my original model post - Product ID 240552 . One of the first, high resolution models of the Aircraft Carrier, CVN-76, the U.S.S. Reagan.
* Additionally, you get the cutaway version in 3 file formats and in a variety of layered breakdowns. You can load models that are broken down into multiple layers for animation, or you can load a single model with all layers combined.
*** The models come with a 'Ready' and 'stowed' F18C, F18E, F18F and F35C (deck/gear down and flying versions that you can populate the decks with. The variety of aircraft shown in the previews are not included but can be purchased elsewhere at this site.
The deck structure is continuous throughout the ship (see previews) and is correct from Nimitz Class plans. The areas visible in the original cutaway are populated with models consistent with that compartment's use. The reactor rooms and engine area are, of course Top Secret and the models supplied there, are based on a similar generic, Westinghouse design. It's a 'best guess' in those areas.
- High resolution models of the carrier externals, and internal deck structures - everything you see except the full aircraft complement - A stowed and ready version of the F18, for populating the deck and hangar are included. The deck crane and some handling equipment is also included.Update: a complement of F18E, F18F and F35C (flying and gear down) have been addd as well as a more complete set of deck equipment shown in the thumbnails close to the end. - The fit-out in the areas shown in the previews of the cutaway are also included.
The models consist of about 40 layers of models representing various decks and important areas as well as parts that may be useful on their own layer. In the OBJ model, these are 'parts.'
All 3 models are full size and will load in 'position' so you can cut and paste decks from one version directly into another. This allows you to add full internal tower decks to the existing external carrier model. The deck and compartmentalization is 'in' but you will have to cut hatchways into the floorplans to do a walkthrough.
