Response to this may be too big I haven't done the math 1/2400th

So a 1/2400 Nimitz Class CV would be about 5 inches long. Having been into wargaming for as long as I've been into models, I can tell you there are a few models smaller than this, but precious few and I do not remember seeing (although memory is NO indication of fact) a 1/3000 scale Nimitz class CV.

Superior makes a 1/2400 Nimitz class CV that sells for under $20, whereas the GHQ version is about $10 bucks more. If interested try this websire:

Doing a little more checking, NavWar makes a 1/3000 Nimitz (which would be around 4 inches give or take). You can see their available models here:

You may also try here:

There are also reported to be 1/4800 & 1/6000 naval miniatures, but I am not sure of their availability. 1/6000 might be exactly the thing you are looking for, as that would work out to around 2 inches for a Nimitz class ship.
