Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good
1969 issue. The Yorktown was one of three prewar sister carriers with Enterprise (CV-6) and Hornet (CV-8). The Yorktown saw extensive action in the Coral Sea, the first sea battle in which opposing forces did not sight each other from warships. At Midway she fought alongside Enterprise and Hornet, but was lost after the battle in an epic struggle to save the ship. Very nicely molded model. Features 20" long full hull with rudder and propeller detail, internal hangar deck sections that are visible through side hangar doors after, 20 Douglas SBD Dauntless airwing (well molded with raised panel lines and propellers), movable cranes, separately molded AA guns and catwalks and optional position elevators. The box art shows the prewar high-vis finish, and decals are included for prewar markings for the ship and aircraft. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.
