Meng Warship Builder Lexington
I enjoyed taking a break from serious warship modeling with this adorable little anime-ish Lexington (CV-2) by Meng. The kit is well-designed and not a quick build by any means. I have always liked the Lexingtons in prewar colors, so I decided to do a different camouflage scheme from the April-May scheme shown on the box. I chose the colors also because by the time Lexington was in overall Navy (or Sea) Blue, her 8" turrets were gone, so rather than kitbash the revised AA arrangement I went back to the colorful 1941 appearance.
