3D Metal Model Kit
USS Theodore Roosevelt CVN-71 Metal Earth ICONX Overview
Metal Earth models are made from laser-cut sheets of steel that are used to build unique licensed models such as the USS Theodore Roosevelt CVN-71! An excellent DIY hobby model kit.
This model comes in flat-packed sheets with insane levels of detail. It’s a unique and fulfilling challenge for dedicated model enthusiats to pop out the pieces and bend the tabs to assemble a large scale model of this popular and resourceful astromech droid for their display box or collection.
You won’t require glue or scissors to complete this kit, all you’ll need is a keen eye, a steady hand. If you wish, a pair of tweezers or magnifying glass can be used to assist in removing the pieces from their backing, but the most important thing you’ll need is patience. It may take a few days!
USS Theodore Roosevelt CVN-71
USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71) (also known by crewmembers as “the Big Stick” or within the US Navy simply as TR) is the fourth Nimitz-class aircraft carrier. Her radio call sign is Rough Rider, the nickname of President Theodore Roosevelt’s volunteer cavalry unit during the Spanish–American War. She was launched in 1984, and saw her first action during Operation Desert Storm in 1991.
Theodore Roosevelt was the first aircraft carrier to be assembled using modular construction, wherein large modules are independently constructed in “lay-down” areas, prior to being hoisted into place and welded together. Modular construction, made possible through the use of a huge gantry crane capable of lifting 900 tons, cut 16 months off Theodore Roosevelt’s construction time, and the technique has been used on every aircraft carrier since.
Theodore Roosevelt’s history began on 30 September 1980, when a contract was awarded for “Hull 624D” to Newport News Shipbuilding. Her keel was laid down on 31 October 1981, with Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger initiating the first weld. On 3 November 1981, Secretary of the Navy John F. Lehman announced that the carrier would be named for the 26th President of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt.
