Fred Heil made a short trip to Chattanooga, Tennessee from his home in the Atlanta, Georgia area to enter this diorama in the 2019 US IPMS National Convention. The models are the USS Nimitz CVN-68 and associated aircraft in 1:1200 scale. However,
for the refueling operation above the
Nimitz, Fred used a Tamiya Skywarrior and A-6 Intruder mounted on piano wire. The refueling hose was small electrical wire. GHQ bomb racks and bombs were added to the Intruder. The ship is mostly built out of
the box. The two aircraft launching from the
Nimitz are also on piano wire. The sea base is artist acrylic gel and paint.
