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.

"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.

"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.

"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 *

"Great kit!!"
Big “D”
This kit was very good, good detail, it went together fine. I just have to paint the finished product. Tamiya does a good job on there kits and they are decent size for the price.
