Eaglemoss Warships of the World WW0041
Taiho-class Aircraft Carrier Diecast Model
IJN, Taiho, 1944

1:1100 Scale   Length   Width
Taiho-class Aircraft Carrier   9.25"   1"

Taiho (meaning Great Phoenix), was an aircraft carrier of the Imperial Japanese Navy during World War II. Possessing heavy belt armor and featuring an armored flight deck (a first for any Japanese carrier), she represented a major departure in Japanese carrier design and was expected to not only survive multiple bomb, torpedo or shell hits but also continue fighting effectively. Built by Kawasaki at Kobe, she was laid down on 10 July 1941, launched almost two years later on 7 April 1943 and finally commissioned on 7 March 1944. She sank on 19 June 1944 during the Battle of the Philippine Sea after suffering a single torpedo hit from the American submarine USS Albacore, due to explosions resulting from design flaws and poor damage control.

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.

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.
