After getting a few relaxing builds under my belt this June, I’m diving back into the world of 1:700 ships. This time, it’s the USS Lexington. Sunk on May 8, 1942 at the Battle of the Coral Sea, Lexington was the oldest of the “modern” carriers to see service in the Second World War. I’m planning on making a display case tentatively titled “The First Six Months,” which will showcase vessels and aircraft from Pearl Harbor to Midway. Lexington fits nicely into that mix, filling the gap between the Doolittle Raid and Midway. As this build progresses I’ll be writing more on the history of the ship, as well as (of course) the quality of the build and my thoughts concerning the project in general. For now, though, let’s get started by taking a peek inside the box, shall we?
