Junyo (Perigrine Falcon) was a Hiyo-class aircraft carrier of the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN). She was laid down as the passenger liner Kashiwara Maru, but was purchased by the IJN in 1941 while under construction and converted into an aircraft carrier. Completed in May 1942, the ship participated in the Aleutian Islands Campaign the following month and in several battles during the Guadalcanal Campaign later in the year. Her aircraft were used from land bases during several battles in the New Guinea and Solomon Islands Campaigns. Junyo was torpedoed in November 1943 and spent three months under repair. She was damaged by several bombs during the Battle of the Philippine Sea in mid-1944, but quickly returned to service. Lacking aircraft, she was used as a transport in late 1944 and was torpedoed in December. Junyo was under repair until March 1945 when the repairs were cancelled as uneconomical. She was then effectively hulked for the rest of the war. After the surrender of Japan in September, the Americans also deemed her not worth the cost to make her serviceable for use as a repatriation ship and she was broken up in 194647.

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.
