Product Description
Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/144   (1 inch = 12 feet)

This accurately shaped and highly detailed model represents the June, 1942 Battle of Midway appearance of the island of the US Navy's most decorated warship, the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise CV-6, the "Big E".  Enterprise received 20 "Battle Stars" for her service, more than any other US Navy warship during World War Two.

Features:
  • overall dimensions accurately scaled from official US Navy plans drawn by Newport News Shipbuilding & Drydock Company, dated 1940
  • details confirmed by careful study of period photographs of the real ship
  • open Pilot House windows
  • open Fighting Top windows
  • open Primary and Secondary Flight Control windows
  • open Battle Lookouts, aka "Vision Slits"
  • open doors (a set of doors is available separately)
  • accurately shaped decks
  • accurately shaped splinter shielding and Pilot House sky lookout position shape unique to Enterprise
  • properly shaped funnel cap with exterior piping
  • delicate exterior electrical cabling detail
  • properly sized and located 16" and 12" diameter portholes
  • properly scaled smokepipes passing through the entire island - forward smokepipe at the correct slope
  • heavy structural deck support details
  • aft cutout for crane
 
Notice: due to the large size of this model, it is only available in the more economical "White Natural Versatile Plastic", a kind of nylon.  This material is waterproof and durable, a very good choice for Radio Control models where durability is important.  When compared to "Fine Detail" acrylic plastic, available separately, sharp edges appear less defined and more rounded when printed.  Being nylon, "White Natural Versatile Plastic" is generally not sandable and fewer types of paint will adhere to it.  Care is recommended in choosing a paint that will adhere to, and fully cure upon, nylon.  Google "paint for nylon" and "primer for nylon" to find several good choices.

Customers report that "White Natural Versatile Plastic", when compared to "Fine Detail" acrylic plastic, will have noticeable striations (print lines).  To help smooth "White Natural Versatile Plastic" surfaces, apply thin layers of primer meant specifically for nylon.  Allow the primer to harden. Then smooth the hardened primer.

From Wikipedia: "USS Enterprise (CV-6), was the seventh U.S. Navy vessel to bear the name. Colloquially referred to as the "Big E", she was the sixth aircraft carrier of the United States Navy. A Yorktown-class carrier, she was launched in 1936 and was one of only three American carriers commissioned prior to World War II to survive the war (the others being Saratoga and Ranger). She participated in more major actions of the war against Japan than any other US ship. These actions included the Battle of Midway, the Battle of the Eastern Solomons, the Battle of the Santa Cruz Islands, various other air-sea engagements during the Guadalcanal Campaign, the Battle of the Philippine Sea, and the Battle of Leyte Gulf. On three separate occasions during the Pacific War, the Japanese announced that she had been sunk in battle, earning her the name "The Grey Ghost". Enterprise earned 20 battle stars, the most for any U.S. warship in World War II and became the most decorated US ship of World War II."
