There is hope out there. Trumpteter is releasing 1/350 scale models of Lexington (CV-2) and Saratoga (CV-3). If they're half as good as the Hornet looks to be, then there's a lot of potential. If those ones sell (and I'm betting they will ) Maybe next will be a Midway class carrier. . .

Dave go to www.tridenthobbies.com and I think you will be able to find what u are looking for. I was able to find and purchase my model the Midway. If you find any others, please let me know.

I too am trying to locate the USS MIDWAY CV-41. I was stationed onboard her from 1989 until she was put to rest. I decommed her and everything. By looking at some of the pictures of her on the MIDWAY website, she is rusting away big time.

I too am interested in the carriers from the earliest carrier. But as far as finding these models including the USS Langley they are simply not available. Believe me ive been searching for the last 3 years. The closest there is Trumpeters USS Hornet. Before that I got and completed the USS
Yorktown, but that model has been completed and on my shelf for over 5 years. Ive contacted Tamiya, pacific front hobbies among others. If you hear of the availability of these ships Id appreciate a line. Daddi-o

That's a great idea, Dave, but don't forget the old "Covered Wagon" - USS Langley,
CV-1. She made it all possible. . .

My dream is to build a collection showing the progress of U.S. carriers, starting with CV-2 USS Lexington, but concentrating on the Essex and Midway Class. The Midway was one beautiful ship when she finally was put to rest.

Don't look for any progress from me for quite a while, I'll have to build from scratch.
