This is an injection-plastic ship model kit.
Completed in August of 1941, the 32,105-ton displacement Imperial Japanese Navy aircraft carrier Shokaku began its operational service career on December 7, 1941, when it launched two air strikes in the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor. After being severely damaged during the Battle of the Coral Sea in May of 1942, Shokaku was repaired and later participated in the Battle of the Eastern Solomons, where it sustained light damage. Severe damage sustained during the Battle of Santa Cruz required Shokaku to return to Japan for extensive repairs and a refit, after which it returned to service in the summer of 1943. On a mission to counter the allied advances in the Marianas in June of 1944, Shokaku met its demise at the torpedos of the US Navy submarine Cavalla, earning the US sub the nickname "The Pearl Harbor Avenger."
Here's another great addition to the ever-expanding fleet of 1/350 IJN naval subjects! Depicting the Shokaku as it appeared in 1941, Fujimi's fantastic full-hull kit comes molded in gray and features a metal anchor chain, decals, and display stands. When completed, this model measures about 730mm long.
The special premium version of this model kit also includes photo-etched parts, metal gun barrels, and a masking sheet for the deck! Increase the strength of your 1/350 IJN fleet with this great kit from Fujimi!
