Product Description

Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/350

Recommended to replace the inaccurately shaped and detailed Trumpeter 1/350 scale USS Lexington CV-2 kit's parts and to backdate the kit to USS Lexington's 1941 - March, 1942 appearance.

This product's high cost is due to the extraordinary amount of acrylic plastic necessary to produce it (41.05 cubic cm) and the time required to print it.  It is not printable in other materials.

This model represents the massive funnel of celebrated aircraft carrier USS Lexington CV-2 as she appeared from 1941 through March, 1942 during which she and her crew participated in an attempted raid on the Japanese base on Jaluit in the Marshall Islands, patrols northeast of Christmas Island, an attempted raid on Rabaul, and a raid on Japanese shipping anchored at Lae and Salamaua.  Get out your Brewster F2A Buffaloes!

Features:
  • fully assembled
  • accurately dimensioned from US Navy Booklet of General Plans drawings
  • accurate elliptical shape, not slab-sided a some plastic kits are, and the 01 level is wider aft
  • detail shapes and locations confirmed by careful study of photographs of the actual ship
  • open smoke pipes, accurately sized and properly sloped and compartmented, passing all the way through
  • open drying room vents just below the funnel cap

  • access hatches on the roof of the fresh water tank (the boxy structure on the 01 level forward of the stack)

  • accurate aft 8" fire control station "fighting top" on the funnel with open windows and shutters in the "up" position

Complementing Model Monkey 1/350 scale US Navy Aircraft Carrier Products:
From Wikipedia: "USS Lexington (CV-2), nicknamed "Lady Lex",[1] was an early aircraft carrier built for the United States Navy. She was the lead ship of the Lexington class; her only sister shipSaratoga, was commissioned a month earlier. Originally designed as a battlecruiser, she was converted into one of the Navy's first aircraft carriers during construction to comply with the terms of the Washington Naval Treaty of 1922, which essentially terminated all new battleship and battlecruiser construction. The ship entered service in 1928 and was assigned to the Pacific Fleet for her entire career....

"Lexington was at sea when the Pacific War began on 7 December 1941, ferrying fighter aircraft to Midway Island. Her mission was cancelled and she returned to Pearl Harbor a week later. After a few days, she was sent to create a diversion from the force en route to relieve the besieged Wake Island garrison by attacking Japanese installations in the Marshall Islands. The island was forced to surrender before the relief force got close enough, and the mission was cancelled. A planned attack on Wake Island in January 1942 had to be cancelled when a submarine sank the oiler required to supply the fuel for the return trip. Lexington was sent to the Coral Sea the following month to block any Japanese advances into the area. The ship was spotted by Japanese search aircraft while approaching Rabaul, New Britain, and her aircraft shot down most of the Japanese bombers that attacked her. Together with the carrier Yorktown, she successfully attacked Japanese shipping off the east coast of New Guinea in early March."
