Product Description
Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/144   (1 inch = 12 feet)

This multi-part kit represents the modernized SCB-125 island of Essex class aircraft carrier USS Hornet CVS-11 as it appeared circa 1967-1969.  During these years, Carrier Anti-Submarine Air Group 57 (CVSG-57) was embarked aboard ship.  The island was in this configuration when Hornet recovered the astronauts of Apollo 11 after their historic mission to the Moon.  A few months later, the ship recovered the astronauts of Apollo 12.  USS Hornet is preserved as a museum ship at Alameda, California (click here).

Features:
  • overall dimension scaled from official US Navy plans with details adjusted to match features of the actual ship
  • open bridge and PriFly windows with delicate framing
  • properly positioned deck features
  • accurately shaped decks, catwalks and splinter shields for Hornet
  • accurately shaped SPS-30 radar platform, unique to Hornet
  • integrated venturis (wind deflectors) accurate for Hornet
  • deck supporting structure details accurately positioned as confirmed by photos of the real ship
  • delicate exterior piping detail correct for Hornet
  • porthole rigols ("eyebrows")
  • correct style A/T doors for Hornet, most in the open position
  • door overhead rain deflectors
  • correct number and position of PriFly splinter shield ribs
  • open funnel cap (grille not included)
  • Phasor 90 dual-cone antennas, port and aft antennas integrated with the island, 2 separate antennas for mounting on kit's radar platform supports (1 facing forward on the port side and 1 facing starboard on the starboard side - see photos in carousel) and 2 spare
  • highly detailed, Cold War-style Mk.37 director

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.

From Wikipedia:  "Officially, Ship Characteristics Board Program 27 proper referred to the completion of Oriskany, left unfinished at war's end, to a heavily revised design; reconstructions of earlier ships were programs SCB-27A and 27C. The SCB-27 modernization was very extensive, requiring some two years for each carrier. To handle the much heavier, faster aircraft of the early jet-era, the flight deck structure was significantly reinforced, able to support aircraft weighing up to 52,000 pounds (23,587 kg), namely the North American AJ Savage. Stronger and larger elevators, much more powerful catapults, and new Mk 5 arresting gear were installed. The original four twin 5-inch/38 gun mounts were removed, clearing the flight deck of guns. The new five-inch gun battery consisted of eight weapons, two on each quarter beside the flight deck. Twin 3-inch/50 gunmounts replaced the 40 mm guns, offering much greater effectiveness through the use of proximity fuzed ammunition. The reconstruction eliminated the difference between "short-hull" and "long-hull" ships; all now had similar clipper bows.

"The island was completely redesigned, made taller, but shorter in overall length with the removal of its gun mounts. In addition, the boiler uptakes were rebuilt and angled aft to accommodate a single radar and communications mast atop the island.

"The SCB-125 upgrade program was first applied to the final three Essex-class carriers to undergo the SCB-27C modernization while they were still in the midst of their original refit. Ultimately every SCB-27 ship would undergo the SCB-125 modification with the exception of USS Lake Champlain (CV-39).

"Despite the drastic alteration of the carriers' appearance, the SCB-125 refit involved relatively little modification of the ships' existing structure compared to SCB-27, and took around six to nine months as against the approximately two years of the earlier program. The original SCB-27A vessels, which were fitted with a pair of H 8 hydraulic catapults, were not upgraded with the C 11 steam catapults fitted to their SCB-27C sister ships due to machinery space limitations. The SBC-27As also did not receive the enlarged No. 1 (forward) elevator installed in the 27C ships as part of SBC-125.

"The first three 27C ships (Hancock, Intrepid and Ticonderoga) had had their No 3 elevators moved from the centerline to the starboard deck edge, in a position relatively far aft. The next three (Shangri-La, Lexington and Bon Homme Richard), which underwent 27C and 125 concurrently, had the elevator relocated to a deck-edge position farther forward, and this location was used for the 27A ships as they in turn underwent SCB-125.

USS Oriskany (CV-34), the prototype for the SCB-27 conversion, was the final Essex to undergo SCB-125 conversion and as such, received further enhancements. As a result of the addition of aluminum flight-deck cladding, Mk 7-1 arresting gear and more-powerful C 11-1 steam catapults to the standard SCB-125 modifications, Oriskany alone was referred to as a SCB-125A vessel.[1] These changes also made Oriskany the sole SCB-27A vessel to receive steam catapults.
