1:700 Shinano class aircarrier complete model with diorama and plastic box!
Shinano (信濃), was an aircrat carrier built by the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) during World War ll , the largest such built up to that time.Laid down in May 1940 as the third of the Yamato class battleships , Shinano's partially complete hull was ordered to be converted to a carrier following Japan's disastrous loss of four fleet carriers at the Battle of Midway in mid-1942. Her conversion was still not finished in November 1944 when she was ordered to sail from the Yokosuka Naval Arsenal to Kure Naval Base to complete fitting out and transfer a load of 50 Yokosuka MXY7 Ohka rocket-propelled kamikaze flying bombs . Hastily dispatched, she had an inexperienced crew and serious design and construction flaws, lacked adequate pumps and fire-control systems, and did not even carry a single carrier aircraft. She was sunk en route, 10 days after commissioning , on 29 November 1944, by four torpedoes from the U.S Navy submarine Archerfish . Over a thousand sailors and civilians were rescued and 1,435 were lost, including her captain. She remains the largest warship ever sunk by a submarine.
