My mom recently picked this up for me up in Michigan, since I live in Florida, it will be a few months before I can pick it up. Based on the detail, I'm assuming it's made from a kit. It's made of wood and very big. I plan on restoring it and was told it was the USS Enterprise CV 6. If it was a kit, any information would be great. I'll be going through the forum on tips on painting and restoring it. Really looking forward to getting my hands on it.
