Hammer of the IJN
Akagi and the other carriers of the Japanese Navy were the terrors of the sea for the first six months of WWII. Ordnance from their planes rained from Pearl Harbor to the Indian Ocean and the IJN seemed unstoppable. Akagi, however, was designed with a wooden flight deck which improved its sea keeping but made it vulnerable. At Midway, the wooden deck proved to be Akagi's downfall. A bomb punched through the deck, ignited the hangar, and slowly burnt out the ship. This limited edition kit features a full hull and display base. A very extensive detail-up photo-etched parts set (Hasegawa 36) is available separately.
