Do these even exist?

Recommended Posts

My B-I-L served on both the USS Coral Sea CV43 & AD 44 Shenendoah in the 80's. He asked me if I could build them to display in his office. My searches have only revealed that I am unable to find a kit of either one. The AD 44 doesn't surprise me but the Coral Sea does. Is there really nothing out there or am I missing something? Even something close that I can convert would be OK with me. Thanks!

Jim, did you look for other ships in the same class. The Coral Sea was in the same class as the Midway and FDR. I did a quick check and there are several Midway kits and one FDR. I can't imagine it would be a nasty task to change one of those to the Coral Sea.

I did. Those are all the WW2 configuration without the angled deck. There is the ARII 1/800 kit but it looks pretty bad.

Thanks. This is starting to look like a scratchbuild project. I may just point him to Motion Models. i don't know what his budget is yet.
