Scale: 1/350

Recommended to help improve your Trumpeter 1/350 scale USS Lexington CV-2 kit to better represent the ship as she appeared on May 8, 1942 during the Battle of the Coral Sea.

These parts are alternative splinter shields for the 1.1 inch anti-aircraft gun mounts fore and aft of the island of celebrated aircraft carrier USS Lexington CV-2 as they may have appeared on the day of her sinking.  Lexington's aircraft, together with those of USS Yorktown CV-5, sank the Japanese aircraft carrier Shoho and the crippled the Japanese aircraft carrier Shokaku during the first carrier vs. carrier battle in history.

In April, 1942, splinter shielding was added around the anti-aircraft mounts forward of her island and aft of her funnel.  Model kits of Lexington typcally depict the splinter shielding as square-ended but the square ends may in fact be incorrect.  Although there is no known photographic evidence confirming the shape of the splinter shields (known officially as bulwarks), they do appear on Pearl Harbor Navy Yard as-built plans in this rounded configuration (see scans of those plans in the carousel).
