1/700 Scale. From the great Tamiya waterline series. The Hornet was first put to use on the 18th of April in 1942. In fact, the first U.S. air raid of Tokyo was launched from the deck of the Hornet.

The Hornet survived for 372 days and then was sunk after sustaining heavy damage in the Battle of the South Seas. This kits exterior surface of the hull is covered with finely engraved details. The ship's command tower is filled with many details like windows, railings, and antennae. The deck of the ship carries 16 B-25 bombers, Anti-aircraft guns scattered about the surface of the ship. A metal ballast weight is included to give the ship the proper dynamic. Waterslide decals provide markings for all of the aircraft as well as the carrier. Skill level 2

USS Hornet (CV-8): From the Doolittle Raid and Midway to Santa Cruz (Legends of Warfare: Naval)
USS Hornet (CV-8): From the Doolittle Raid and
USS Hornet (CV-8), made famous through its launching of the 16 US Army B-25 Mitchell bombers flown by Jimmy Doolittle's raiders in the first US strike on Japan in May 1942, was the third and last Yorktown-class aircraft carrier completed. Serving the US Navy for just over one year, the warship had a brief yet heroic life. This volume explores Hornet's construction, wartime activities (including the Battle of Midway), and ultimate sinking during the Battle of Santa Cruz in October 1942 through carefully researched photos, many of which have never before been published, which are reproduced in remarkable clarity. This clarity and the large size of many of the photos, coupled with descriptive and informative captions, put the reader on the deck of this historic warship throughout its short history. Part of the Legends of Warfare series.

The Ship that Held the Line: The U.S.S. Hornet and the First Year of the Pacific War (Bluejacket Books)
The Ship that Held the Line: The U.S.S.
The American fleet aircraft carrier Hornet is widely acknowledged for the contributions she made to the war effort. The Doolittle Raid, launched from the Hornet's deck, inaugurated America's Pacific counteroffensive and transformed the aircraft carrier into one of the world's prime strategic weapon systems. She was one of three carriers to participate in the victory at Midway and the fighting around Guadalcanal. Through the experiences of this key warship and the eyes of her crew and the aviators who flew from her deck, Lisle Rose recreates the first desperate year of the war in the Pacific. He tells how the Hornet was molded into a deadly weapon of war, how the ship was fought and ultimately lost, and what it was like to live aboard her at a time when the fate of the United States depended on the Navy's tiny carrier fleet.In chronicling the carrier's operational history, the author contends that the fate of the Hornet's air group at Midway remains one of the great controversies in modern naval history and that the ship's importance in helping to keep the Japanese juggernaut at bay during the most critical period of the Pacific war is incontestable. His arguments ring true today as the controversy continues. Rose succeeds both in letting the reader see things the way the men of t...
