Description

Launched in April 1925, the Saratoga, also known as the 'Sister Sara,' was commissioned in November, 1927, as an aircraft carrier; however, she was originally laid down as a battle cruiser and reclassified mid-way through the manufacturing process. This explains features rather unique on an aircraft carrier of her era, such as an enclosed bow and massive funnel. Sister Sara was a veteran of many actions in the WWII conflict, including the February, 1945, Battle of Iwo Jima, where she survived devastating hits from Japanese fighters. Her final contribution to the U.S. cause came after the end of WWII; she was sunk as one of the targets in a nuclear test on Bikini Atol.

This 1/700 scale kit is designed to depict the part of the ship seen above the waterline, so that it may be displayed on a flat surface as though it were at sea. The model accurately replicates the Saratoga as she appeared during the Battle of Iwo Jima in February, 1945. Includes a two-part hull, a one-part flight deck, which stretches from the bow of the deck to the stern, plus scale replicas of Hellcat and Avenger aircraft.

Length: 15.6 inches (396 mm). Tamiya kit no. 31713.
