Eaglemoss Warships of the World WW0051
Asashio-class Destroyer Diecast Model
IJN, Asashio, 1942

1:1100 Scale   Length   Width
Asashio-class Destroyer   4.25"   0.25"

Asashio ("Morning Tide") was the lead ship of the ten Asashio-class destroyers built for the Imperial Japanese Navy in the mid-1930s. Asashio saw action at Midway and Guadalcanal before being sunk by an Allied air attack during 1943's Battle of the Bismarck Sea. The Asahio-class destroyers were larger and more capable that the preceding Shiratsuyu class, as Japanese naval architects were no longer constrained by the provisions of the London Naval Treaty. These light cruiser-sized vessels were designed to take advantage of Japan's lead in torpedo technology, and to accompany the Japanese main striking force and in both day and night attacks against the United States Navy as it advanced across the Pacific Ocean, according to Japanese naval strategic projections. Despite being one of the most powerful classes of destroyers in the world at the time of their completion, none survived the Pacific War.

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.
