Product Description

Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/350

Recommended to replace the inaccurately shaped and detailed Trumpeter 1/350 USS Saratoga CV-3 kit's funnel parts to show the funnel as it appeared pre-war from 1928-1940.

This product's high cost is due to the extraordinary amount of acrylic plastic necessary to produce it (41.05 cubic cm) and the time required to print it.  It is not printable in other materials.

This model represents the funnel of celebrated aircraft carrier USS Saratoga CV-3 as it appeared from her commissioning in 1928 through 1940.  It has features unique to Saratoga, different than those of Lexington during this period.

Features:
  • fully assembled
  • accurately dimensioned from US Navy Booklet of General Plans drawings
  • accurate elliptical shape, not slab-sided a some plastic kits are, and the 01 level is wider aft
  • detail shapes and locations confirmed by careful study of photographs of the actual ship
  • open smoke pipes, accurately sized and properly sloped and compartmented, passing all the way through
  • properly sized and accurately shaped secondary conning station/aviation control station with open windows
  • open drying room vents just below the funnel cap
  • funnel cap roof has the correct complex curve - plastic kit manufacturers get this shape wrong
  • funnel cap roof access hatches (three)
  • access hatches on the roof of the fresh water tank (the boxy structure on the 01 level forward of the stack)
  • starboard side searchlight platforms positioned at the correct height for Saratoga (Lexington's were higher)
  • gently curved port and starboard side catwalks with delicate supporting structure (unlike Lexington, which has only the starboard side catwalk)
  • accurate aft 8" fire control station "fighting top" on the funnel with open windows
  • detailed, internal, twin 8" Mount #3 barbette and associated bulkheads with open scuttles which will be visible through:
  • open A/T doors, ready for your favorite photoetch
  • open portholes (airports) properly sized and located
  • delicate exterior electrical cabling, properly positioned and routed
  • heavy structural supports included
  • light structural supports, railings and ladders omitted, ready for your favorite photoetch

Complementing Model Monkey 1/350 scale US Navy Aircraft Carrier Products:

From Wikipedia: "USS Saratoga (CV-3) was a Lexington-class aircraft carrier built for the United States Navy during the 1920s. Originally designed as a battlecruiser, she was converted into one of the Navy's first aircraft carriers during construction to comply with the Washington Naval Treaty of 1922. The ship entered service in 1928 and was assigned to the Pacific Fleet for her entire career. Saratoga and her sister shipLexington, were used to develop and refine carrier tactics in a series of annual exercises before World War II. On more than one occasion these included successful surprise attacks on Pearl HarborHawaii. She was one of three prewar US fleet aircraft carriers, along with Enterprise and Ranger, to serve throughout World War II."
