Dragon Model Ships 1/700 USS Independence CVL22 Aircraft Carrier 1943 (Re-Issue) Premium Edition Kit
The 622.5 feet long Independence Class carrier is the next subject in our 1/700 scale Premium Edition kit from Dragon. Many parts have been reworked and updated. Just one of the many highlights includes the clear deck, which allows the interior of the hangar bay to be fully viewed. The bridge island has also been redesigned with a clever combination of plastic injection-molded and photo-etched parts. There are also updated weapons and aircraft to populate the flight deck. This class of carrier was launched from August 22, 1942 onwards but now it has been commissioned yet again in this Premium Edition kit – a kit that offers ship modelers a first-rate replica of this important and illustrious type of WWII carrier.
