An accurate scale model of the USS Nimitz nuclear powered aircraft
carrier which was commissioned in 1972. Its beautifully detailed and unmatched in the industry, the
Graupner USS Nimitz is one of our Premium Line of historical ships that will
not disappoint you. Arriving Almost Ready to Run, the motors and rudder servo
are already placed, and only the radio and electrical system need be installed
before the boat is water-ready. For reliability and performance, we
highly recommend a Graupner radio such as the mc-16 which provides real-time
telemetry information of the condition of your ship.
The Graupner Premium Line ships are carefully handcrafted
and assembled using CNC processing to replicate the model as originally as
possible. The hull is made from molded GRP complemented by the superstructure
and deck which are constructed from laser-cut ABS parts. Many of the small
items are made from metal, and almost everything is factory-assembled. The
hull, parts of the superstructure, the masts and fittings are spray painted
using semi-matt paints. Decals are already applied. With so many details and
scale fittings, the Premium Line ships all have an impressive scale appearance.
The USS Nimitz can be further enhanced and expanded with a variety
of Graupner expansion modules such as lights, sounds and operating radars with
our Nautic modules.
