05/11/2020. USS. Donald J Trump. 21" Tinplate Clockwork Aircraft Carrier.
The USS Trump has a 16 plate 0.2mm hull with a 0.35mm frame, the motor is removable via the midships hatch on the flight deck which also serves as the winding portal. The motor runs for around 9 minutes but this is not a fast model, the heavy ballast required to stabilise the deck sees to that. As builds go this was quite tricky you don't see many model aircraft carriers and that's probably because the're swines to trim! Took me hours to get it to sit just right! However, I can rest easy in the knowledge that, unlike the Royal Navy's latest aircraft carrier, mine is of some actual use by having a working aircraft on board!
