IJN, I-400, 1945

I-400-class Submarine   4.25"   0.5"

The largest submarines of World War II, Japan's I-400 class boats were underwater aircraft carriers designed to take three M6A Seiran aircraft to their target.

Please note: Unlike other releases in this series, this particular model ships in a plastic clamshell case only, without a cardboard outer box and without a Japanese language magazine.

I-400-class Submarine

Designed as a submersible aircraft carrier, the I-400-class entered service in 1944. The I-400-class were the largest submarines of World War II and were capable of carrying three Aichi M6A Seiran aircraft. In fact, the M6A was purpose-built to be stowed in the narrow confines of the submarine's water-tight hangar and launched by compressed-air catapult. The submarine would covertly approach a target while submerged, surface, launch its aircraft and then quickly submerge to relative safety. Although a fleet of 18 such submarines was planned, only three were completed.

Eaglemoss Warships of the World

The Eaglemoss "Warships of the World" range presents detailed, ready-made diecast models of naval warships in 1:1100 scale. This series was originally produced for the Japanese market and so the packaging and display stand are all written in Japanese. Nevertheless, the beauty and detail of the models speak for themselves - no translation necessary!

Eaglemoss "Warships of the World" diecast models feature:

  • Diecast metal construction with some plastic components.
  • Pad printed markings and placards that won't fade or peel like decals.
  • Presentation display stand.
