I wanted to do something  really special for my Father-In-Law's 70th birthday last year. I decided to make a model of the ship he served on in Vietnam... the USS Intrepid. Problem: no one makes a kit that represents the ship during the Vietnam era. I could only find  one of the Intrepid from WWII. So, how do I turn a WWII ship into her modern refit?
