  1. I’d love to see the Lady Lex in her battlecruiser form and call her Lexington CC.
  2. Here’s a fun little thing my friend and I made today using the new 30” Lexington CC model I had made for me. It’s a port ship profile picture of what Lexington might look like if she were a tier VII battleship, or battle cruiser in reality. The Lady Lex herself in all her glory as she might have been had she’d been completed as a CC, battlecruiser, instead of a CV, aircraft carrier. If you’re interested in seeing this gallant beauty in game, check out this article I wrote a while back. Also, include below is another piece about the Lexington CC model I had built. Check them out and have a great day!
  3. Well, the model has arrived and the photos are in from SD Model Makers. She is 30” long, so just under 1:350 scale. Something like 1:34896 or whatever. For those of you who don’t know, the Lexington -class aircraft carrier, or CV, was originally supposed to be a battlecruiser, or CC. The model is is being built in a configuration that suggests what she might have looked like as a CC in USN service in early 1941. ARMAMENT: x8 16”/50 main guns. x10 6”/53 secondary guns. x10 5”/25 heavy AA guns. x6 1.1”/75 “Chicago Piano” medium AA guns. x19 Water cooled M2 .50 caliber BMG light AA guns. Enjoy! P.S. This is an article I made a while back about having this ship added into WoWS. Check it out if you like the Lady Lex.

    Lexington-class CC Model circa 1941

    I agree. It would be nice. Akagi at T8 and Lexington CC at T6.

    Lol, true. I agree with your statements. Although, I’d prefer the 1941 refit at T6, so she at least has something more than a handful of 3”/50s to shoot at aircraft. And me being me I’d like her to be named Lexington CC or CC Lexington because that is the class name. They did it for all the variations of the T28 in WoT (T28, T28 HTC, and T28 Prototype), they could do it for the Lexington.

    Thank you. Glad that you agree with me on that. Here’s a link to the post I made discussing it.

    Indeed. Here’s a concept drawing from around 1920 and a ship bucket design that I’m basing the model on.

    I did a post on that conundrum. I suggested putting her in at T6 because of her armor problem and making her fairly accurate and speedy to make up for it with a possible secondary build. Well, that amongst other options that I put forward. She’s a beautiful ship regardless of her protection issue.

    Thank you very much. The guys at SD Model Makers have been doing a terrific job with the little amount of information I have been giving them. There’s not much on these old CC designs. I’ll be sure to post more photos of her as she is altered and modified.

    It’s one of those instances of a common mistake being accepted as truth. BC has never been officially used to designate battlecruisers. The only official designation ever given to battlecruisers in history is CC by the USN. Sense the Royal Navy uses pennit numbers instead, most designations we use these days like DD, FF, CA, CL, BB, and CV, originate from the USN. Therefore, CC is the more appropriate term to use when referring to battlecruisers. You can thank the Lady Lex and her sisters for that.
  11. Well, the preliminary photos are in from SD Model Makers. Some additions and alterations still need to be done, but she is coming along nicely. She is 30” long, so just under 1:350 scale. Something like 1:34896 or whatever. For those of you who don’t know, the Lexington -class aircraft carrier, or CV, was originally supposed to be a battlecruiser, or CC.
