Product Description

Catalog (click here)

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 following her aircraft, together with those of USS Yorktown CV-5, sinking the Japanese aircraft carrier Shoho and the crippling of Japanese aircraft carrier Shokaku during the first carrier vs. carrier battle in history.

Although there is no known photographic evidence confirming the shape of these splinter shields (known officially as bulwarks), they do appear on Pearl Harbor Navy Yard as-built plans in this rounded configuration for alterations made in April, 1942.  It is possible that the as-built plans accurately reflect the true shape of the splinter shields fit to the ship during the April 1942 refit at Pearl Harbor.
