USS Wasp LHD-1 - 285SHIP003


Product Description

Please read very carefully and email me if you have any questions at all.

When you purchase this model from this page, you will be charged a deposit only, the balance due will be invoiced later.

This model is a great way to display and show off your helicopters and anphibious vehicles. It would also be great as an off-board staging area for aviation elements that can be called into a game at any time.

This is NOT a kit. When you order this model, you will be ordering a completely scratchbuilt, totally finished and painted model exactly as you see in the photos. The top deck is removable to reveal the removable hangar deck and below that is the cavernous lower vehicle bay. The model includes LED and fiber optics lighting through the lower vehicle bay.

Model is primarilly made from durable .060" acrylic with some resin cast parts and some compoistes. Model is built with durability in mind but please be aware that it still a model and will require some care and caution when handling and using in a gaming enviroment.

The model does not include helicopters or aircraft shown in some of the photos.

So, what does it cost? This is a custom built commission and it will be built as shown in the attached photos. If you would like anything in additon to what you see in the photos, that will effect the price. However, if you order the model exactly as it appears in the photos posted here the base price will be $1500.00 plus shipping or delivery. When you order this item through this page, you will be charged a $275.00 deposit to be placed into the production queue, and I will contact you directly to arrange payment of the balance due via check or money order.

Shipping of a model like this might cost as much as $100.00 depenidng on where you live and will be billed separately (I do not reccomend having this shipped outside the USA but I'll do it if you request that and are willing to pay for all related fees). If you are anywhere in the Southern California or Arizona area, I would be happy to meet you somewhere half way for a personal delivery. When you order this model, standard lead times do not apply. Your model will be custom built for you, and this could take up to 2 months but will more likely be about one month.


The Wasp class is a class of Landing Helicopter Dock (LHD) amphibious assault ships operated by the United States Navy. Based on the Tarawa class, with modifications to operate more advanced aircraft and landing craft, the Wasp class is capable of transporting almost the full strength of a United States Marine Corps Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU), and landing them in hostile territory via landing craft or helicopters. All Wasp-class ships were built by Ingalls Shipbuilding, at Pascagoula, Mississippi, with the lead ship, USS Wasp, commissioned on 29 July 1989. Eight Wasp-class ships were built, and as of 2013, all eight are active.
