9780 USS Kittyhawk
|MEGABLOKS > Probuilder > Collector Series|
The set 9780 USS Kittyhawk is a Mega Bloks Probuilder set released in 2000. The set contains a 3-foot model depicting the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Kittyhawk, which includes 8 F-14 Fighters. This set contains 1700 pieces.
The USS Kittyhawk set is one of the largest Megabloks sets released totaling 1700 pieces, and the box is absolutely jam packed.
There were two new special pieces introduced in this set. The first is the piece used for the deck plates which is like an 8x12x1/2 tile. Each has a 1x2 studded region on each corner, and regular 1x2 tiles fit flush on those studs. This allows a pair of 2x2 tiles to join a set of 4 deck plates. The second special piece is the small F-14 jet, 8 of which are included.
The main body of the ship is built in 3 pieces, which are then joined together as units. The 3 pieces are built and joined upside down which makes sense as the deck of an aircraft carrier is its largest width and length, and the deck provides a nice solid base to build on.
