This is Neptun 1316 LEXINGTON, which has been converted to SARATOGA circa 1938-9. My goal was to make the model as compatible as possible with the sister model, thus the changes made were confined only to those needed to make the ship as SARATOGA. Flaws in the original model (such as ship’s gigs and launches, which are not accurate) were not changed. The primary changes to the model involved revision of the bow, the removal of MG sponsons at the four corners of the deck and on the funnel, and the additions of decals on the stern and funnel.
