USS KITTY HAWK CVA-63
Ship MODELING
This is the model of USS Kitty Hawk CV-63 as it was used on the ship during her Decommissioning on 31 January, 2009.
The webmaster of  this page
made ship models
to remember his days
in the Navy.

He chose the USS Forrestal CV-59
because it was commissioned just
two days after he was discharged.

Vern created his models
during the year 1956
as he remodeled his
parents basement,
the location of these
3 photo setups.

Vern followed the CVA-59 to
the recycle yard in Brownsville.

Vern created the (Amphibious/Attack Transport) PA
ship to the left because his uncle was a Radio Man
on the APA-91 ADAIR during WWII.

 I, the webmaster, while searching the web for model information, became interested in the two prongs sticking out at the Carrier bows. Kitty Hawk does not have them -NOW!.
