Details:

Tamiya ventured into the modeling business in 1948, with a scale wooden ship model kit. Since then, Tamiya has been striving to offer merchandise that can truly be called 'First in Quality Around the World.' Now Tamiya is offering more than 300 different products, both in the fields of precision static models and high performance radio control vehicles. These products are not only sold in Japan but also exported in vast quantities to the United States, Europe, South East Asia, and to many other parts of the world. The standard of excellence achieved by Tamiya is regarded as among the very finest in the world of model hobbies.
  • The Saratoga is a highly interesting subject. Launched in April 1925, 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 operation 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 Atoll.
  • This finely detailed plastic model kit requires assembly and painting.
