This model will represent USS Hancock CVA-19 in her Vietnam war appearance during her 2. Vietnam War Deployment from January 1967 till July 1967 with CVW-5 embarked.
The Air Group was much colorful and versatile with F-8 Crusader, A-1 Skyraider, A-3 Skywarrior, A-4 Skyhawk, E-1 Tracer and Seasprite Helicopters aboard.
CVA-11, CVA-14 and CVA-19 are nearly identical because they belonged to the first batch they underwent SCB-27 modernization in the early 50’s and SCB-125 in the late 50’s of the last century.
Deck layout, elevators, island, catapults etc. was still similar. Just the radar configuration as well as some minor hull details were different. I will come up with modifications only in areas noticeable, as was the radar layout to get a best as possible representation with just slightly modifications.
