Tamiya 1:700 Scale US Escort Carrier CVE-9 Bogue Plastic Model Kit - 74-T31711
The Bogue was the lead ship of her namesake class of 11 escort carriers which were produced from 1942 to 1943 to mainly serve as convoy escorts in the Atlantic. She was responsible for sinking many German U-boats as well as the Japanese submarine I-52 which was on its way to Germany. The unique design with a flight deck on a merchant ship hull has been accurately reproduced by this model, together with details such as the aircraft elevator and arresting gear. Small parts such as the lifeboats and AA guns also feature sharp details and the kit includes parts for 16 aircraft (Corsairs, Avengers, Hellcats, and Helldivers).
