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.

"So So Kit"
In general I like Tamiya kits. This one lacks appeal. This waterline version is nice in that the black colored hull base eliminates having to paint a waterline. Maybe I'm not supposed to work on 1/700 scale! Just didn't enjoy this one.

"Great kit"
This is a great aircraft carrier from Tamiya. The ship has a lot of detail for having small pieces. There was very little clean up on the parts. Some pieces were tricky to get in the right spot, but with enough patience it is possible. At some times, the directions were a little unclear, but it is nothing to worry about. The ship comes with the B-25 bomber in order to recreate the Doolittle Raid. I would recommend this to a more experienced modeler due to the size of the pieces.

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.
