One of the most active aircraft carriers of the entire war, the British HMS Royal was involved in the first aerial and U-boat kills of World War II. Incorrectly reported as sunken multiple times, she was eventually fatally struck by the German submarine U-86 in November of 1941. Her wreck was discovered in 2002, 30 miles from Gibraltar.
A stunning replica of the British ship, this 1/700 scale, die cast model features an amazing attention to historical authenticity including a revised color scheme (based on thorough visual research), realistic deck and superstructure details, a new wooden-look presentation stand, and a sea-wave blister for unique waterline display. Measures approximately 13¾" long.
