I was thinking this is 1/72 scale but it could be 1/48 or something inbetween. Anyway it is possibly the largest high quality scale model of a ship like this. The model is in the configuration of the Lexington as it was at the battle of the Coral Sea. The 8" gun turrets had been removed and it is carrying TBD Devastator Torpedo Bombers. Those can be seen in photo #3. Also it has the SBD Dauntless Dive/Scout Bombers. Looks like the fighters are F4 Wildcats.
Now for the exciting part 2.
