A06748.9 IN NAVY METAL PLOTTING MODEL! THE U.S.S CV-9 ESSEX

The Essex was commissioned on February 17, 1943, and was responsible for destroying over 1 million tons of shipping and more than 1,000 enemy planes during World War II.

Tokyo Rose called the Lady Lex the Blue Ghost because of numerous reports of her sinking only to return to battle painted a blue-gray color which was different from the camouflage coloring of other naval vessels with a rich history that stretches from WWII to Korea and Vietnam action.

we have a very rare item, the original war room plotting model that was used to plan battles at sea by having enemy and US vessel models to push around on a large table of the seas in action.

The model is all gray metal and extremely detailed.

The item is not cracked, and nothing is amiss. Original paint. Nothing wrong that I can see.

I have 24 original plotting item ships on auction at this moment: The YAMATO, THE JAPANESE CARRIER TAIHO, THE US ENTERPRISE AND THE US ARIZONA, RYUZYO, SHOKAKU, NAGATO, MUTSU, EARLY and LATE ISE CLASS, KONGO CLASS, BRITTISH CARRIER FURIOUS, BRITTISH BATTLESHIP NELSON, CARRIER SARATOGA, IOWA, LEXINGTON, and more! By the sheer use presence of the ship name Arizona, this is definitely a pre-war made item.

I see no issues. A very heavy war

THIS IS A GOVERNMENT, WARTIME OR PRE-WARTIME MADE ITEM, NOT A COLLECTORS MODEL. I have TWENTY TWO of these plotting models from a set, all available, so see the rest!

The next paragraphs are ALL Ebay required, since I once had an ad pulled because of a complaint that I did not elaborate enough on my postal pricing. âe(tm)s the druel: Ebay grades for shipping costs:

My items are professionally packed. Maximum protection without adding undue weight. All packing is commensurate with the type of item being purchased. I buy expensive poly-mailers and boxes. Bubble wrap too. All of this equates to co$t. Gas is expensive today, car maintenance and all. The PO Box is almost 14 miles one way. My time and the car wear costs.
