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, and as is a full set of aircraft including Mitsubishi A6M2 fighters
and Aichi D3A bombers.
