1/700 HM-020 Pit Road IJN Akagi With Three Flying Decks (Pre-1935)
Resin Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc
Rare, very high quality waterline kit of the Akagi in the three-deck configuration. Features superbly cast resin hull and deck sections, three large trees of injection molded details, numerous cast metal details and precision cast metal biplane torpedo bombers and biplane fighters. There are extensive decals for the air wing and the ship The kit has never been started. Almost all parts are still in the factory sealed bags. The few large parts that are not internally sealed have been inventoried complete, including decals and instructions. The initial idea for Akagi was to make three decks to speed up the take-off and landing of aircraft. It worked initially, but by 1935 the lower two decks were not long enough for the heavier aircraft. At that point Akagi was reconstructed to a single deck configuration.
