Laid down as the “Ticonderoga” in January 1943, this CV-19 aircraft carrier was renamed “USS Hancock” and launched almost exactly a year later. The first combat voyage of this carrier displacing 27,100 tons was a daring raid on the Ryukyu Islands and Formosa in October 1944 in indirect support of the Leyte landings in the Philippines. Throughout the course of the remaining months of WWII, “USS Hancock” was in the thick of the action against Japan in the Pacific, facing and overcoming typhoons, an aircraft explosion, enemy dive bombers, and direct hits from kamikaze pilots. When the Japanese Imperial Government surrendered formally aboard the battleship “Missouri”, planes from the “Hancock” were flying overhead. This aircraft carrier had a full and distinguished combat record (including right up to the Vietnam era).

There are various options with the model, including the choice of a waterline or full hull. Add to that the novel inclusion of an optional transparent flight deck, which allows interior details to be seen if so desired by the modeler. Featuring intricate injection molded parts, complemented by clever use of photo-etched metal parts, this is the kit to own.
