Scale: 1/350

Recommended to help build USS Portland CA-33 from:

  • Academy 1/350 scale USS Indianapolis CA-35
  • Iron Shipwrights 1/350 scale USS Indianapolis CA-35 (1945)
  • Trumpeter 1/350 scale USS Indianapolis CA-35 (1944)

  • Yankee Modelworks 1/350 scale USS Indianapolis CA-35 (1945)

 

This Aircraft Handling Deck and Forward Funnel model helps convert any 1/350 USS Indianapolis model kit to one of the US Navy's most decorated warships, USS Portland CA-33, as she appeared during crucial Pacific battles fought during the summer of 1942, Coral Sea and Midway.

This deck has been designed to be adapted to any 1/350 USS Indianapolis kit.  The deck has been intentionally designed slightly wider than scale permitting the modeler to gently trim/sand the deck sides to fit the modeler's plastic kit's hull (not included).  Depending on which plastic kit you own, some modification to this part and/or the kit's parts will be necessary for best fit.  Acrylic plastic is very brittle.  Care is advised during adjustment.


Features:

  • correct funnel and steam pipes for USS Portland
  • planked deck of the proper length, camber (arch) and shear (slope)
  • two aircraft catapult pedestal towers, correct for USS Portland
  • vent openings designed open, ready for PE or mesh screen inserted from inside
  • double deck hatch with scuttles, hinges and dogs details
  • lower tripod legs designed to meet and match the forward superstructure (available separately)
  • correct style, four-panel A/T doors in the closed position with chevron-shaped rain deflectors above
