Model Description

This handcrafted CV-8 Hornet 1/350 scale model is painstakingly built by our skilled craftsmen with a wealth of detail. The CV-8 Hornet is notable for launching sixteen Army B-25s in the Doolittle Raid, as a participant in the Battle of Midway, and for action in the Solomons before being lost to an overwhelming air attack in the Battle of Santa Cruz Islands. The Doolittle Raid weighed 19,800 tons and stretched 809 feet 9 inches. She had a speed of 33 knots and could carry a crew of 1,889. Planned and led by Lieutenant Colonel Jimmy Doolittle, the Doolittle Raid was the first air raid by the United States to strike the Japanese home islands during World War II. It was the only time in US military history that US Army Air Forces (USAAF) bombers were launched from a US Navy aircraft carrier on a combat mission. 

Our Hornet wooden ship model is an exact replica of the original, handcrafted with vigilance by master craftsmen. After it is sanded and puttied, skilled artists paint on the intricate details. Clear lacquer provides the finishing touch and long-lasting protection. Each ship model comes on a a display base with brass pedestals and a brass name plate.
