U.S. Escort Carrier CVE9 Boat

During the early stage of World War 2, the German Navy's "U-Boat" submarines posed a great threat to the Allied Forces in the North Atlantic Ocean. To counter them, new destroyers were built to escort transport vessels, as well as escort carriers that could provided constant air protection to the convoys for the length of their journey across the Atlantic. This type of aircraft carrier was a modification from certain merchant vessels, and the U.S. Navy made an extensive development and use of them for convoy escort and aircraft transportation.

"Great model of an often forgotten ship"
garlictoast97
This turned out to be one of my favorite ship models. It packs a lot of detail into a small package. The fits are good and it looks great on display.

"the instructions could be a bit clearer"
glang87
this is a well made model tweezers should be use for very small pieces but take your time and you will be satisfied with the result

 
"Escort Carrier"
Alan Boling (Ware Shoals)
A fun small build. good details and detail work needed to build. a Great neat nifty model of the mostly unsung Escort Carriers of WWII

 
"Wonderful Piece of History to Build"
marlimann
People forget that these little carriers saved our butts during WWII as they were an important stop gap until the Essex's came along. I loved the kit as I was building a part of history that many overlooked, especially during the Philipenes landings. Wonderful fit an finish of parts, quite a few challenging aspects to keep it interesting, and a piece to be proud of once completed.

Keep small pieces and sharp edges away from children ages 3 and under.
