Scale: 1/350
 

Recommended to help improve Gallery Model's 1/350 scale USS Intrepid CVS-11.


This multi-part kit represents the modernized SCB-125 island of Essex class aircraft carrier USS Intrepid CVS-11 as it appeared about 1966-1967 during combat operations off Vietnam.  Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 10, tailcode AK, was embarked aboard the ship during those years.

This model is intended as a more accurately shaped and better detailed, direct replacement for the Gallery Models' Intrepid kit's island.

Features:

  • accurately shaped structure scaled from official US Navy plans
  • open bridge and PriFly windows with delicate framing
  • decks properly offset to port
  • properly positioned deck features
  • wiper motor details on the navigating bridge
  • deck supporting structure details accurately positioned as confirmed by photos of the real ship
  • delicate exterior piping detail correct for Intrepid
  • porthole rigols ("eyebrows")
  • correct style A/T doors for Intrepid, most in the open position
  • door overhead rain deflectors
  • integrated Phasor 90 paired-cone antennas with additonal sets for placement elsewhere on the ship
  • correct number and position of PriFly splinter shield ribs
  • properly slanted and positioned antenna base outriggers
  • open, intregrated venturi (wind deflectors)
  • open funnel cap (grille not included), ready for your favorite photoetch set
  • integrated Mk.37 Fire Control Directors
