ANSWER: Terrance, Most Tamiya kits are well designed and pretty clean moldings. I built a 1/700 Bogue class escort carrier and aside from the eye strain it went together well. I haven't a clue why the folks at E hobbies thought I'd know anything about a modern carrier though. Good luck with your construction. by P O 12/27/2011
ANSWER: My USS Enterprise kit was purchased back around 1990 or so, before the F/A-18 E/F was even dreamt of. So, at that time the kit obviously didn't come with those jets. i recently did a re-furbish and an update of my existing Enterprise to more recent specs, which is why I bought the Tamiya update sets for more jets, but the F/A-18s were still the "C" models. To be perfectly honest, the jets are so small, I doubt anyone would be able to tell the difference between a "C" model or an "E" model without magnifying glasses anyway at this scale! I am perfectly happy with the older jets, as the Enterprise was the first nuclear carrier and from an earlier era - I would stick with what it comes with and the accessory jets as they are, as they represent a good mid-life representation of the Enterprise.
