If your building one of the new Trumpeter Nimitz class carriers in 1/700 or 1/350 scale you have probably already stocked up on aftermarket details. Now all you need is a some good reference material. Ray Bean, professional photographer by trade has compiled this photo CD of Nimitz class detail pictures. This one CD has 168 high resolution JPEG  images of the Nimitz CVN-68, Dwight D. Eisenhower CVN-69, Abraham Lincoln CVN-73, and George Washington CVN-74. The photos are taken from 70's to present day and show all areas of the ship. A sampling of images is shown below. Please note that all these have been reduced in size and formatted for the web. 
The images on the CD are print quality and range in size from 168 kilobytes to 3 plus megs and sizes typically around 3600 pixels wide. To view the images just pop in the CD and display them using your computers file browser just like images on your hard drive.  
The image on the right was resized to make it easier to view on the web. I cropped out a section of the image at it's original size to show a portion of the image actual size relative to the resized web version. As you can see the image is large enough to determine what colors to paint the aircraft handlers on the deck. The photos show everything from the radar's and mast details, to the defensive weapons, and aircraft handing equipment. More than enough to get a good idea of what's on the ship. 
Currently  Ray D. Bean has 20 volumes of photo CD's available. There are other titles on the rest of the Nimitz class and many other US Navy subjects. If you like to superdetail your ships, then this is just the tool you need. This one runs $20 and is available direct from Still Motion Photographics. A must have for the Nimitz class model builder.
