And this is the one I have been waiting for.

I bought a Lexington as my first USN WWII Carrier, but wanted an Enterprise from 1942 at Santa Cruz.

I hope that a PE Detail set for it isn’t long in the wait.

I'm hoping that Very Fire knocks it out of the park on their upgrade set.

INTERERSTING, but will it have the correct details for Iowa or the Missouri kit with a new box?

It looks like that it will be different from the Missouri - note e.g. the bare conning tower, correct for Iowa.

The USS Iowa from Very Fire in 1/350 is pre-July 1943 fit, almost as commissioned during her shakedown cruise. Note that the model is missing the searchlight in front of the forward secondary director, for example.

And yet has Seahawks instead of Kingfishers... curious.

Yeah somebody might want to clue Very Fire into that. And the searchlight.

The missing search light is very important. The fit is limited to one month(even less), and according to photographic evidence she didn't even had radar during that limited time she was almost incomplete , she is actually a pre-March 1943 fit before she was inclined at Bayonne Navy Yard in New Jersey on 28 March 1943. Curious choice from Very Fire, almost like a mistake.

If the model is suppose to be 1943, the images show Mk 12/22 radars on her Mk 37 directors, which weren't available until mid-to-late 1944.

Computer generated images aren't always accurate representations of either the ship or kit as produced.

But it has the three 20mm on Turret 2. That, plus the artwork, would suggest they're aiming it more for the late-43, early '44 period. Any errors should be measured against that objective.

It looks like the model suffers from the same mistake USS Alabama had from Trumpeter, a very narrow time frame with mistakes/items from later periods or total wrong details. Almost haphazardly.
But as Rick E Davis said lets wait and see the final product.

What Atma said. Also, if I'm going to pay hundreds of dollars for a base kit, it better damn well be executed well. Otherwise, I'll snag an ol' Mo and modify accordingly. :|

I thought on the Iowas that the straking stopped where the Armor-belt was.

If you mean the hull plating, then it is continuously visible along the whole length as the armor belt was internal like on the South Dakotas.

I've given the VeryFire guys a shout with a link to this page of the thread. The searchlight can be as simple as a particular piece of the 3D model not selected for the render.

UPDATE: the "missing" searchlight is indeed in the kit.
