Porte-avions Yorktown 2m70 (8'10'' aircraft carrier) . Here is my LEGO version of the CV-10 USS Yorktown aircraft carrier. Some 60 pounds bricks for a 1:100 scale reproduction of this "fighting lady" as she stood in january 1945 with her 97 planes (30 F6F Hellcat, 37 F4U1D Corsair, 15 SB2C Helldiver and 15 TBF Avenger). . USS CV-10 Yorktown aircraft carrier Under construction as Bon Homme Richard, this new Essex-class carrier was renamed Yorktown in honor of CV-5 Yorktown, sunk at the epic Battle of Midway (June 1942). Built in an amazing 16- months at Newport News, Virginia, Yorktown was commissioned on April 15, 1943, and participated significantly in the Pacific Offensive that began in late 1943 and ended with the defeat of Japan in 1945. Yorktown received the Presidential Unit Citation, and earned eleven battle stars for service in World War II. First, a view of the bow. Note the 1:100 scale with the little guy. E.L. Shipbuilding & Drydock Co. I like the idea of LEGO parts used to build LEGO. Brooklyn Navy Yard 350T hammerhead crane. First part! And, as usual, some gold coins in the structure: The bridge crane is not existing anymore... ... parts were needed to build the giant hull! Two hull sections ready to be assembled Clic! Horizontal vertigo The name is already on the hull My 6 years old daughter to give the scale. 2,70 meters long (8'10'') - the hull, not my daughter! Nice to see that gangway doors can be opened Helldiver parks on hangar rear elevator Hellcat (wings folded up) waiting on hangar front elevator Hangar inside view Notice the repeated 10 code on the hull Flight deck assembly Some parts for flight deck building Lots of tiles for realistic teck deck effect Front deck with the 10 Yorktown identification code F4U-1D Corsair on front elevator Rear elevator, sadly not (yet) motorized Helldiver on rear elevator (top position) Mk12 quadruple mount of Bofors guns (40mm) Preliminary study for 5-inch (127mm) twin gun mount Mk32 Essex class caracteristic aircraft carrier island The front top island Mark 37 fire control director Island starboard view Island front view with some guns Nice shot, isn't it ? Anti-aircraft defense. Helldiver bombers parked on the deck. Hellcat just after docking. Flight deck crew hurries to prepare next one. USS Yorktown aircraft carrier as she stood in january 1945. Six F6F fighters and ten TBF torpedo bombers quite ready to take off All squadrons are on the deck, 97 airplanes : 37 F4U-1D Corsair, 30 F6F Hellcat, 15 TBF Avenger and 15 SB2C Helldiver. In the 1950's, USS Yorktown aircraft carrier was modified with the addition of an angled deck to better operate jet aircraft in her role as an attack carrier (CVA). In 1958, YORKTOWN was designated an anti-submarine aircraft carrier (CVS), and would later earn 5 battle stars for service off Vietnam (1965-1968). The ship also recovered the Apollo 8 astronauts and capsule (December 1968). YORKTOWN was decommissioned in 1970 and placed in reserve; and in 1975, was towed from Bayonne, NJ to Charleston to become the centerpiece of Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum. My LEGO version is quietly anchored in my lego room.
