Product Description
Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/700

Recommended to help build a Forrestal class carrier from any 1/700 scale Kitty Hawk class kit:
 
This model represents the island of Forrestal class aircraft carrier USS Saratoga CV-60 as it appeared circa 1970-1975 during the Vietnam War.  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 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 scaled from official US Navy drawings, details adjusted to match photos
  • solid navigating bridge, flag bridge and primary flight control station "prifly" windows with subtle, raised window framing and correct wiper motor detail for 1970-1975
  • open portholes for the signal shelter on the 09 level
  • open battle lookout ports, fore and aft, properly sized and positioned
  • highly detailed doors of 2 types fixed to the bulkheads in the open position, and one closed door
  • detailed and textured starboard side intake vents
  • accurately shaped decks, platforms, catwalks and splinter shields properly located specific to 1958
  • detailed starboard-side electronic countermeaures room and radar room with open doors sandwiched between bi-level platforms extending outward from funnel
  • accurately shaped and sized SPN-35 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
