1/490 5224 Revell USS Yorktown CV5 Aircraft Carrier
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good
1987 reissue from the original 1967 molds. A nicely done kit for that time featuring a 20" long hull, movable cranes, ptional position elevators and 20 SBDs. The box art shows the wartime finish, but the kit contains decals for this or the prewar high-vis finish. The kit has never been started. Inside it is still factory bag sealed and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: decals are missing 4 of 40 SBD wing insignia (36 are left). The Yorktown was one of three prewar sister carriers along with Enterprise (CV-6) and Hornet (CV-8). The Yorktown saw extensive action in the Coral Sea and underwent temporary repairs in record time so she could take part in the Battle of Midway. Damaged by bombs and eventually a spread of submarine-fired 'Long Lance' torpedoes, she was lost after an epic struggle to save the ship.
