1/350 YKM-35123 Yankee Modelworks CA-45 USS Wichita Heavy Cruiser - Wichita Class
Resin Model Kit, Box Condition: VG++
Very rare; the Wichita was the only ship of her class and this is the only 1/350 scale model ever made of her. Yankee Modelworks 1/350 were advertised as the World's Finest 1/350 Ship Kits, and that was no idle boast. All resin parts are cast from de-aired molds in a pressure chamber, ensuring that every detail is sharp and there are zero to few air bubbles. Careful design of the molds also nearly eliminated resin flash. The cast metal fine details are stunning and it can be built full hull or waterline. The large and extensive set of two brass photoetched frets are the equivalent of a modern 'Super Detail' PE set. This model can be built waterline or full hull. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.
