This Coast Defense Fort is a model #523 and measures 16″ x 8″. This one is a bit unusual. I consider it a transition from the pre – 1942 version to the 1942 version. It has all of the characteristics of the earlier version, the “stone wall” front dock, the center cannon and side search lights, the more segmented lawn layout and the swivel plane launch on the right. However, it has the single gun window in the gun control that started in 1942.
