This auction is for a large Revell 1/540 model plastic kit of the Midway class USS Franklin D. Roosevelt from my personal collection dated 1995 on the box. The kit had no instructions with it when I purchased it. This is a reissue of the vintage kit from 1995. It first came out in the nineteen fifties, and for a kit from back then it has very good detail. The instructions that come with this kit are from a more vintage 1961 model kit of the FDR. The instructions are in very good clean condition. The decal sheet is in very good condition with some yellowing. It was missing the flag sheet so I added one from a Revell USS Arizona kit.

The parts are molded in light grey and it comes with a air group of Helicopters, F9F-Cougars, skyraiders, and F4U Corsairs, 26 in all. The hull is around 21" long. All the parts are still sealed in the factory bag. There are some loose parts in the bag that have come off of the sprues but none are missing. This would make a good builders kit due to the condition of the very thin box. The box is in clean dry condition, but it does have a lot of bowing and folds.

Enjoy your model life, one of the most underrated 3D forms of art. Richard.
