Product Description
Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/144   (1 inch = 12 feet)
 
This model represents the island of Forrestal class aircraft carrier USS Independence CVA-62 as it appeared circa 1965-1971 during the Vietnam War.  The Forrestal class was the world's first "super carriers".  Click here for valuable reference photos of USS Independence CV/CVA-62, the fourth ship of the Forrestal class.  

During this period, Carrier Air Wing 7 (CVW-7), tail code "AG", was embarked, equipped with A-6A Intruders, A-4 Skyhawks, F-4 Phantoms, F-8 Crusaders, A-1 Skyraiders, E-1 Tracers, SH-3 Sea Kings, among others.

Features:
  • overall dimensions scaled from official US Navy drawings, details adjusted to match photos
  • open navigating bridge, flag bridge and primary flight control station "prifly" windows with correct wiper motor detail for 1965-1971
  • 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
  • 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 a mast (mast not included)
  • open funnel uptakes
  • diesel generator exhausts between funnel uptakes

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.
