USS Hornet Aircraft Carrier Waterline

The Hornet was the eigth aircraft carrier of the U.S. Navy and the third one of the Yorktown type constructed under the limitations of the naval treaty. The Hornet had excellent equipment and anti-torpedo protection, but her anti-aircraft armament consisting of eight 5-inch (12.7mm) single-barrelled A.A. guns (38 calibres long) was rather weak. She was powered by turbine engine offering 120,000hp and made a speed of 34 knots.

"Doolittle Raid"
beaubowden6 (Troy Ohio)
This is, in my opinion, one of the best deals you will find with 1:700 ships. This is a very detailed product with a great price. I believe it is the cheapest 1:700 scale aircraft carrier. It comes with 16 b25s for the Doolittle Raid. This is my 4th 1:700 scale kit, and it is my favorite one. If you are into U.S. History this is a great model for you.

"Very nice"
The 16 B-25's are what make it. A fun build. I recommend it for an in-between project, which is how I used it.

"This ships is amazing !"
Spencer (Long Island , NY)
The U.S.S. Hornet is out of in amazing shape. For a pro modeler she isn't to hard ( not the best for beginnings but possibly to build ) She comes with a few aircraft B-25 Micthell bombers to be exact. This remembers my of the Doolittle Raid , which to Summarize was when we out bombers in aircraft carriers because our normal planes ( TBD , F4F , ect. ) didn't have even fuel storage to make a bombing run to Japan and back to the Carriers about 400 miles away. The reason they were so far was because the Japanese guns would desstory any ships that got within a 400 mile range. Overall this carrier is amazing. The only thing I see wrong is that paint job can be chanllgeing but is possbily with extreme patients and a good steady hand . She is displayed beautiful at on my table with over ships at a WW2 model exhibit at the American Legion Hall in Rockville Center on Long Island. If your interesting in seeing her and others please call the director George at 516 - 668 - 3140 or the assistant Spencer at 516 - 632 - 0951 . *Note we are non profitable nor do we sell models and we love Hobbylinc and would never take business away *

"Amazing detail! really fun build!"
I loved making this just like the Yorktown and Enterprise by Tamiya its really detailed and it is a wonderful addition to my US fleet and my collection overall.
