Exquisitely detailed 1/350 scale assembly model kit of the World War II Japanese Aircraft Carrier Akagi. The Akagi took part in the Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor (7 December 1941) and launched waves of planes at Oahu. During the Battle of Midway (25 May 1942), the Akagi was struck by one 1,000-pound bomb dropped from a U.S. Navy SBD Dauntless dive bomber, and the bomb set off explosions among the eighteen fully armed and fueled "Kates" that were being prepared for an air strike against the American carriers. The Akagi did not sink from the attack but was dead in the water, as damage control teams could not contain the flames consuming the carrier. On 5 June Yamamoto ordered her scuttled by torpedoes from the destroyers Arashi, Hagikaze, Maikaze, and Nowaki. This is a rare limited edition super detailed 1/350 scale model kit packed with incredible details and bonuses. The features: Clear-molded aircraft with stores (3 each Zero Type 21s and Type 99 dive-bombers plus 6 Type 97 attack bombers). Separately molded flight deck elevators, brass anchor chain, historic reference booklet, 1/350 scale rolled color painting guide and detail drawings, printed paper flag sheet, plus extensive decals for hull, flight deck, ensigns and aircraft.

During the early stage of World War 2, the German Navy's "U-Boat" submarines posed a great threat to the Allied Forces in the North Atlantic Ocean. To counter them, new destroyers were built to escort transport vessels, as well as escort carriers that could provided constant air protection to the convoys for the length of their journey across the Atlantic. This type of aircraft carrier was a modification from certain merchant vessels and the U.S. Navy made an extensive development and use of them for convoy escort and aircraft transportation.
