Scale 1/96   (1/8 inch = 1 foot)
 

This model represents the post-1944 refit "long-bridge" island of the Essex class aircraft carrier USS Yorktown CV-10 as it appeared from late 1944 through 1945.  The island was in this configuration when Yorktown's airgroup participated in the sinking of the Japanese super-battleship Yamato. 

 

During the 1944 refit, the forward-most Bofors tub was removed, the pilot house and flag bridge were enlarged by extending them forward, and the starboard-side 20mm Oerlikon platforms were enlarged to include positions for three Mk.51 Bofors directors. 

This design captures features specific to USS Yorktown, differing from other 3D-printed Essex class island designs available separately.


Features:

  • fully assembled
  • scaled dimensions match official US Navy Booklet of General Plans drawings for USS Antietam CV-36, as well as scaled drawings by John Roberts appearing in "Anatomy of the Ship: The Aircraft Carrier Intrepid", with details adjusted to match high-resolution photos of USS Yorktown CV-10
  • splinter shielding and deck shape for the navigating bridge are accurate to USS Yorktown's unique shape
  • accurately shaped, detailed and positioned doors of three different types with chevron-shaped rain deflector detail (most doors are positioned open)
  • accurately sized and positioned open portholes, of two different sizes, with rigol ("eyebrow") details
  • accurately shaped decks and catwalks
  • integrated, open-slotted venturi (wind deflector) on the navigating bridge splinter shield
  • deck supporting structure details accurately positioned as confirmed by photos of the real ships
  • open battle lookouts
  • subtly curved funnel caps
  • open uptakes completely through the island, with correct bend in rear uptake
  • open flag lockers
  • accurate exterior cabling detail
  • Bofors tubs spent shell casing chutes
  • formation lights on searchlight platform splinter shield
  • funnel access scuttle
  • exterior steam pipes for ship's whistles
  • starboard-side incinerator pipe
  • venturi (wind deflector) on splinter shield around the pilot house
  • subtle, raised locator discs on decks and platforms to aid on the placement of 40mm Bofors mounts, 20mm Oerlikon guns and searchlights (Bofors, Oerlikons and searchlights are not included)
  • integrated tripod mast with ship's bell

 

This model is scaled to represent the features of the actual ship based on the best, authoritative references available.  It is NOT a 3D-printed copy of any metal, plastic or resin kit's parts.
