The IPMS USA National Convention was this past weekend in Hampton, VA. At the show, Merit International announced their forthcoming 1/350th scale kit of U.S.S. Yorktown in injection molded styrene. This kit has been in the works for some time, and in recent months representatives from Merit have been working with members of this website to ensure that the final product is as accurate as possible. Several people were able to hold an early test shot of the hull and verify that it is far more accurate in shape than earlier attempts in this scale.
Work continues, and we here will do as much as we can to ensure that the kit is as accurate as possible and worthy of the name Yorktown. Expect to see announcements concerning release date and retail pricing in the coming months.
