1/700 Japanese Aircraft Carrier Zuikaku. This is an assembly kit of the Zuikaku, the 2nd ship of the Shokaku-class that was completed in September 1941. With her combination of speed, powerful anti-aircraft armament, and large aircraft complement, she was the ideal aircraft carrier for the Japanese Navy. As the model for the Shokaku depicts that ship in early-WWII form, this model depicts the Zuikaku as she appeared during the Battle of Leyte Gulf. Thus the model recreates the additional anti-aircraft armament as well as late-WWII aircraft such as Mitsubishi A6M5 fighters and Yokosuka D4Y bombers. Specs & Features: Completed Length: 367mm.
