1/700 U.S.S. Independence Class Aircraft Carrier ~ Premium Edition The 622.5 feet long Independence Class carrier is the next subject in our 1/700 scale Premium Edition kit from Dragon. Many parts have been reworked and updated. Just one of the many highlights includes the clear deck, which allows the interior of the hangar bay to be fully viewed. The bridge island has also been redesigned with a clever combination of plastic injection-molded and photo-etched parts. There are also updated weapons and aircraft to populate the flight deck. This class of carrier was launched from 22 August 1942 onwards but now it has been commissioned yet again in this Premium Edition kit ? a kit that offers ship modelers a first-rate replica of this important and illustrious type of WWII carrier. Main Features: - New flight deck made from clear parts - Photo-etched hanger bay platform - Photo-etched radio tower - Photo-etched SK radar - Photo-etched crane in great details - Updated 20mm single gun mounts and 40mm quad mount cannons - F6F Hellcat and TBF/M Avenger constructed in transparent plastic - Cartograf decal marking for USS Independence, USS San Jacinto and USS Monterey - New box art illustration About this kit: Originally laid down as cruisers, nine Independence Class vessels were converted into light carriers as an emergency wartime measure. These aircraft carriers of the U.S. Navy offered distinguished combat service at a time when there was a shortage of larger carriers. Because they were not designed from the outset for this role, they were cramped and had limited maintenance and storage facilities for the maximum number of 45 aircraft that could be carried on board. Their appearance was distinctive with four funnels and a rather small bridge island. However, they were relatively fast with a maximum speed of 32 knots. About this new series: What are Dragon Premium Edition Kits? Premium Edition kits strike an optimum balance between technology and value for the money, often with the reuse and revival of existing Dragon Models. New technology is added to create new molds and more accurate parts, and these elements are combined to produce a greatly improved kit. Premium Edition kits are complete in every sense and offer modellers a chance to extend their families of model vehicles.
