There is no mistaking the appearance of the USS Lexington CV2. These photographs show the Lady Lex as she appeared at the Battle of the Coral Sea in May 1942. The 1.1-inch gun arrangement that was incorporated in place of the original eight-inch gun turrets presents a very unique look. The kit is the 1:350 scale Lexington from Yankee Modelworks. The model comes with optional parts to portray the ship as lost, as seen in these photographs, or as she appeared before Pearl Harbor still mounting her four twin 8-inch gun turrets. The master pattern for the kit was produced by Mike Bishop. This build of the YMW Lexington was built by the head yankee of Yankee Modelworks, John Sheridan.
