1/500 607-229 Renwal CV-16 USS Lexington Aircraft Carrier with Regulus Missiles
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc
Far and away the most accurate injection molded kit of this ship. The USS Lexington took part in many WWII battles in the Pacific. She was placed in the reserve fleet, but was modified into an angle-deck Essex like many of her sisters and recommissioned in 1955. This configuration is modeled upon the ship in late 1950s. Like all Renwal ships, the details are excellent and the moldings very fine. Includes Regulus I missiles and launchers, moving elevators, full hull, flag sheet, full color decals and an airwing with F9F-8 Cougars (wings folded and unfolded), A3D Skywarriors and Helicopters. Kit has never been started. NOTE: kit is missing two parts. #15 elevator guide and #54 yardarm. The elevator guide is simply a trimmed "U" channel, so it is easily made from stock shapes. The yard is easily made also. Complete with all other parts, decals, flags and instructions.
