1/480 YORKTOWN CLASS

FOR REVELL KITS

 

480-001   USS YORKTOWN CONVERSION SET

This set will convert and correct the Revell kit into either USS Yorktown (CV-5) or USS Enterprise (CV-6) thru the Spring of 1943. The set comes with the island and the 5" gallery guns. The 1.1" guns are included but can no longer be replaced as they were the reason we discontinued it, as they proved nearly impossible to cast with a resin strong enough to hold the shape yet flexible enough to go into the mold. The guns will be sold "as-is" and are very easy to fix with 0.015" rod cut to length. We have lowered the price to accommodate this inconvenience accordingly.

 

 

 

To go along with our reissue of the conversion set, we are introducing the replacement flight decks for the kit. Each Deck is custom cut to represent any of the three units of the class at a particular point in time.
