    CVN-76 USS RONALD REGAN has completed it's sea trials . All went well. Conditions were light to moderate chop on the water with light to moderate winds and wind gusts. Ran it for 2hrs solid . It's a beast and takes getting used to. I needed 10 more lbs of ballast so I improvised using large pond rocks . Model displacement 86lbs full.

    Thanks . I been upgrading the wiring harnesses and installed cooling systems and additional detailing . More planes are being built to add and more crew . I am planning to install lights in all the recessed alcoves under the wings of the flight deck .
