Hard over to port...

Revell 1/720 Enterprise taking a hard turn.

For those who think is is a litte far fetched, this is theUSS Nimitz doing the same turn.

I had understood that that photo was a fake, tricked up using Photoshop. Very interesting to find it is real. Great dio Kostas.

Truly gorgeous work. I'm always thrilled to see dramatic action with ship scenes! --Karl

I had done some checking myself when I saw it the first time. Photo credits: Edgar Dale Surber, via Fred Willshaw this from Navsource. It is odd to think a ship that big can turn like that. I saw USS America do a high speed turn off the Virginia Capes. We were on her tail playing air dog when she did it. I will agree to one thing, Photoshop in the proper hands is a problem.

Hi everyone and thank you for your kind remarks. As for the particular photo i can't tell you of it's real or not or any other details, but while i was half the way into this dio i discovered another picture from LIFE magazine with the actual Enterprise on a seemingly exact same maneuver but taken from a different angle .I cant upload the picture as i just moved and there is still no internet connection at home but soon as i get one will post it.One thing is for sure that back in the 60's there wouldn't be much of a chance of retouching digitally any of these pictures.

To me it the picture is real or not doesn't matter. Your depiction of it is really good!
