Product Description

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.

After the Revel, Monogram and Lindberg ship models I built as a kid in the early 50s, Tamiya came along in the 1980s(??) and just blew the earlier models out of the water, literally! Then Trumpeter and Dragon in the 21st century are doing their best to make Tamiya look out-dated. Both those companies supply super-detailed brass photo-etch parts (PE) with their models, to upgrade appearances tremendously. Many after market companies (White Ensign Models, Gold Medal Models) supply--for a not-insignificant cost--even MORE photo-etch sheets to totally transform these models into museum quality/contest winner displays. Now Hasegawa comes along and, in my very humble opinion, makes ALL the other model makers look a bit "under-detailed!" The HULLS of most Hasegawa models are split vertically along the keel--there is NO option like Dragon to make a full hull or waterline hull model, BUT, all the plates are etched into the hulls, as opposed to all others being SMOOTH, which, of course, is not realistic! There is a super-detailed PE sheet for Akagi, an even MORE Super detailed PE sheet, extra airplanes AND PE parts for them, etc. These extra parts can easily cost the same amount as the actual kit itself, but when you are finished, NOTHING will compare at any price! I am presently awaiting my super detailed parts and a wooden flight deck. But I have already commenced work on my Hasegawa IJN Battleship, Nagato, and the aftermarket White Ensign PE sheets I purchased to upgrade are just incredible!!! I have no reason to believe that the Akagi super detailed PE sheets will be even better! My only wish is that Hasegawa would branch out into WWII ships from the US, Britain and Germany as well as the IJN models!
