Product Description

Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/200

For modelers who prefer integrated, 3D-printed catwalks.  Hornet island version with no catwalks or searchlight platforms is available separately.

Recommended for the Merit International 1/200 scale USS Hornet CV-8  (# 62001)

This accurately shaped and highly detailed model represents the 1942 appearance of the island of celebrated US Navy aircraft carrier USS Hornet CV-8, veteran of the Battles of Midway, Guadalcanal and Santa Cruz, and ship that launched the Doolittle Raiders to fame over Tokyo.  

Features:
  • overall dimensions accurately scaled from the official builder's plans drawn by Newport News Shipbuilding & Drydock Company, dated April 5, 1940, adjusted for 1942
  • details specific to USS Hornet confirmed by careful study of builders plans and period photographs of the real ship
  • properly asymmetrical Pilot House, a feature every plastic kit manufacturer gets wrong
  • accurately sited Tripod and Fighting Top (Hornet's was further aft than the tripod of her elder sisters)
  • open Primary Flight Control "PriFly" windows
  • open Battle Lookouts, aka "Vision Slits"
  • open doors, ready for your favorite photo-etch (not included)
  • accurately shaped decks
  • accurately shaped splinter shielding with interior rib detail (remove from sprue)
  • properly shaped funnel cap
  • properly sized and located, open, scale 16" and 12" diameter portholes
  • properly scaled smokepipes passing through the entire island - forward smokepipe at the correct slope
  • delicate exterior electrical cabling
  • heavy structural deck support details (light supports omitted, ready for your favorite photo-etch
  • aft cutout for crane
 
These 3D-printed acrylic parts are designed to accurately represent features of the actual ship.  They are not 3D-printed copies of plastic kit parts.  Some adjustment to your plastic kit's parts or other aftermarket parts such as photoetch or wood decks may be necessary for best fit.  To fit this acrylic island to your plastic kit's flight deck, please remove the raised locator strips on the kit's flight deck part.  A simple cuticle cutter can cleanly and easily remove these raised locator features.

From Wikipedia: "USS Hornet (CV-8), the seventh ship to carry the name Hornet, was a Yorktown-class aircraft carrier of the United States Navy. During World War II in the Pacific Theater, she launched the Doolittle Raid on Tokyo and participated in the Battle of Midway and the Buin-Faisi-Tonolai Raid. In the Solomon Islands campaign she was involved in the capture and defense of Guadalcanal and the Battle of the Santa Cruz Islands where she was irreparably damaged and sunk by enemy destroyers. Hornet was in service for a year and six days and was the last US fleet carrier ever sunk by enemy fire. For these actions, she was awarded four service stars, a citation for the Doolittle Raid in 1995, and her Torpedo Squadron 8 received a Presidential Unit Citation for extraordinary heroism for the Battle of Midway."
