1/700 Water Line Series


Length: 367mm. Image shows assembled and painted kit.

This is an assembly kit of the Shokaku, which was a mainstay of the Japanese Navy's Mobile Fleet from the start of WWII to when she was sunk by U.S. submarines at the Battle of the Philippine Sea. With a good combination of speed, armament, and protection, she is often regarded as the ideal aircraft carrier. This model depicts the ship as she appeared in early WWII, during operations such as the attack on Pearl Harbor and the Battle of the Eastern Solomons. Markings are included for the white lines and landing markers on the flight deck, as is a full set of aircraft including Mitsubishi A6M2 fighters and Aichi D3A bombers.
