Default 1/72 scale USS Ticonderoga.

Hello everyone my first post here.
I make a living making things from foam and sintra plastic and have been wanting a big warship and this is where I am so far.
This project had to meet certain goals.
1. It had to look good.
2. It had to be fast building.
3. It had to be inexpensive.
So far so good. Most all of the Tico is 1/2" pink foam with 1/8" Sintra decks. At 1/72 scale it's 94 1/2" long with a beam of 11", the hull splits in the middle and is bolted together so it will fit in my car.
I want to post photos but RCU won't let me until I have 10 posts.

Power for this beast is from 2x 55 turn rock crawler motors. RPM is low and torque is high should work.
