Checking out the auction site and saw two very rare kits. Sellers think they are custom made but they're kits. Auction site number 293220506396 and number 2331200276103 are AMPCO 1930s Lexingtons. AMPCO was a Chicago based model company that made 500 scale 1920s and 30s warships. I didn't know if anyone had ever seen these and it is very unusual to see two. Needless to say as with any kit their prices are probably a little out of line but they are good indicators how modelers of that era built things. The Mariners Museum in Newport News has some of these as display models the last time I was there.
