Product Description

Scale: 1/720

Recommended for:

This model represents the island of Forrestal class aircraft carrier USS Saratoga CV-60 as it appeared circa early 1958, about two years after commissioning.  The Forrestal class was the world's first "super carriers".  Click here for valuable reference photos of USS Saratoga CV-60, the second ship of the Forrestal class.  This island is intended to help you build "Super Sara"from any 1/700 scale Kitty Hawk class aircraft carrier model (the Forrestal and Kitty Hawk classes shared the same hull although the flight deck was arranged differently).

This model is designed from official US Navy drawings to match features and dimensions of the actual ship.  Therefore, it may be sized and shaped differently than your plastic kit's parts.  Some adjustment of your kit's parts or other aftermarket products such as photo-etch may be needed for best fit.

Features:
  • overall dimensions from official US Navy drawings
  • solid navigating bridge, flag bridge and primary flight control station "prifly" windows with correct wiper motor detail for 1958
  • accurately positioned portholes for the signal shelter on the 09 level
  • accurately positioned battle lookout ports, fore and aft
  • highly detailed doors of 2 types fixed to the bulkheads in the open position, and one closed door
  • exterior cabling detail correct for 1958
  • detailed and textured starboard side intake vents
  • accurately shaped decks, platforms, catwalks and splinter shields properly located specific to 1958
  • SPN-8 radar dome
  • lower portion of the swing-down mast fixed to the superstructure (does not move) with hinge detail at the base, with small locator dimple to aid in attaching your kit's mast
  • open funnel uptakes
  • diesel generator exhausts between funnel uptakes
  • sloped funnel cap, correct for 1958
