This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.

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.

1/700 Scale Waterline Series
An interesting modeling concept is at work in these Waterline Series ships. Each kit depicts warships of various nations as they appeared during WWII. What is of special significance, is that as their name Waterline implies, the models are of the portion above the waterline. Therefore they can be placed on a flat surface and appear as they would on the ocean, with the draught portion omitted. What''s more, 1/700 scale permits collecting great numbers of them and using relatively little space. With over 100 ships in this series, it is perhaps the largest collection of its kind in the world.
