Product Description
Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/350

Recommended to help build USS Portland CA-33 from: 
This Aircraft Handling Deck and Forward Funnel model helps convert any 1/350 USS Indianapolis model kit to one of the US Navy's most decorated warships, USS Portland CA-33, as she appeared during crucial Pacific battles fought during the summer of 1942, Coral Sea and Midway.

This deck has been designed to be adapted to any 1/350 USS Indianapolis kit.  The deck has been intentionally designed slightly wider than scale permitting the modeler to gently trim/sand the deck sides to fit the modeler's plastic kit's hull (not included).  Depending on which plastic kit you own, some modification to this part and/or the kit's parts will be necessary for best fit.  Acrylic plastic is very brittle.  Care is advised during adjustment.

Features:
  • correct funnel and steam pipes for USS Portland
  • planked deck of the proper length, camber (arch) and shear (slope)
  • two aircraft catapult pedestal towers, correct for USS Portland
  • vent openings designed open, ready for PE or mesh screen inserted from inside
  • double deck hatch with scuttles, hinges and dogs details
  • lower tripod legs designed to meet and match the forward superstructure (available separately)
  • correct style, four-panel A/T doors in the closed position with chevron-shaped rain deflectors above

From Wikipedia: "USS Portland (CL/CA–33), the lead ship of her class of cruiser, was the first ship of the United States Navy named after the city of Portland, Maine.[1] Launched in 1932, she saw a number of training and goodwill cruises in the interwar period. In World War II, she saw extensive service beginning at the 1942 Battle of Coral Sea, where she escorted the aircraft carrier Yorktown and picked up survivors from the sunken carrier Lexington. She screened for Yorktown again in the Battle of Midway, picking up her survivors as well. She then supported the carrier Enterprise during the initial phase of the Guadalcanal Campaign later that year, and was torpedoed during the Naval Battle of Guadalcanal. The torpedo inflicted heavy damage which put her out of action for six months as she was repaired in Sydney, Australia and later San Diego, California.

"Returning to action in mid-1943, she saw action in many of the major campaigns of the Pacific War, conducting shore bombardments in support of campaigns at the Aleutian IslandsGilbert and Marshall IslandsMariana Islands, and New Guinea. She was involved in the October 1944 Battle of Leyte Gulf, engaging Japanese ships in the decisive Battle of Surigao Strait. She then conducted shore bombardments at Lingayen Gulf and Corregidor Island, and in 1945 supported landings during the Battle of Okinawa until the end of the war.

"Following World War II, Portland accepted the Japanese surrender in the Caroline Islands and then undertook several Operation Magic Carpet cruises to bring U.S. troops home. She was decommissioned in 1946 and scrapped by 1962. In her extensive service she accrued 16 battle stars, making her one of the most decorated ships in the U.S. fleet."
