Italeri World of Warships - German Battleship Bismarck 1:700 Scale

Italeri World of Warships - German Battleship Bismarck 1:700 Scale  (IT46501)

1 MODEL KIT - 1 LIQUID CEMENT - 1 SHIP GUIDE - 1 WALL POSTER (29,7x42cm) - WORLD of WARSHIPS DECALS - 3 INVITE CODES - 1 BONUS CODE
Based on the Bayern class of battleships from WWI, the Bismarck was the pinnacle of German heavy ship development- and probably the best known German ship of World War II.

Laid down in 1936, Bismarck was launched in February 1939 and its outfitting proceeded quickly in the shadow of impending war. Even so, Bismarck missed the beginning of the war and the great offensive effort of the Kriegsmarine (KM) during the invasion of Norway. Commissioned in August 1940, Bismarck departed swiftly for sea trials which lasted until the end of the year.

With Bismarck’s sister ship, Tirpitz, nearing completion, a grand sortie of all the KM heavy units was planned for 1941, with the goal of disrupting British convoys in the Atlantic an expansion on the previous Operation Berlin. However, it was quickly found that the Tirpitz would be delayed and other ships were unavailable. As a result, the Bismarck departed on 19 May, 1941, for its only combat sortie escorted only by a heavy cruiser, the Prinz Eugen. First spotted by Swedish ships and then by a recon Spitfire, the Bismarck lost the element of surprise. Intercepted in the Denmark Strait by HMS Hood and HMS Prince of Wales on 24 May, it earned its fame by sinking the Hood by causing a spectacular magazine detonation. A combination of combat damage, mistakes and simple bad luck caused this success to be short-lived. The Royal Navy managed to quickly concentrate forces and locate the Bismarck again. As a twist of fate, a single lucky hit doomed the Bismarck when a torpedo from the Swordfish bomber damaged the battleship’s rudder on May 26.

In the morning of May 27, battleships HMS King George V and HMS Rodney closed in and their gunfire caused critical damage to the Bismarck, which was abandoned by its crew and sunk within 2 hours of the first hit.
Even though, its career was extremely short, as a highly decorated battleship due to a spectacular 8-day sortie, the Bismarck obviously deserves a place in our game

Italeri World of Warships - IJN Atago 1:700 Scale

Italeri World of Warships - IJN Atago 1:700 Scale  (IT46502)

1 MODEL KIT - 1 LIQUID CEMENT - 1 SHIP GUIDE - 1 WALL POSTER (29,7x42cm) - WORLD of WARSHIPS DECALS - 3 INVITE CODES - 1 BONUS CODE
Atago is one of four Takao-class heavy cruisers, built between 1927 and 1932, for the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN). Like her sister ships, Atago was named after a mountain: Mount Atago - located just outside of Kyoto.

The design of the Takao-class evolved from the preceding Myoko-class heavy cruisers, built in the 1920s. With thicker armor, dual-purpose main-battery guns and improved torpedo launcher safety, Takao-class vessels became the backbone of the IJN.

Their main armament consisted of ten 20 cm/50 3rd Year Type naval guns, in five twin-mounted turrets and 24 Type 93 “Long Lance” torpedoes that could be launched from four quadruple-torpedo launchers.
Due to this, Atago became one of the most heavily armed cruisers in the world – at least at the time. It was quickly discovered that the ship design was top-heavy, which affected stability and seaworthiness. For this reason Takao and Atago were rebuilt.

The size of the bridge was reduced, the main mast was relocated aftwards, and hull bulges were added to improve stability. Laid down on the 28th of April 1927 at the Kure Navy Arsenal – the same shipyard where the famous battleship Yamato was later constructed – Atago was launched on the 16th of June 1930. The final outfitting and sea trails took nearly 2 years, and the ship was finally commissioned on the 30th of March

Italeri World of Warships - USS Essex 1:700 Scale

Italeri World of Warships - USS Essex 1:700 Scale  (IT46503)

1 MODEL KIT - 1 LIQUID CEMENT - 1 SHIP GUIDE - 1 WALL POSTER (29,7x42cm) - WORLD of WARSHIPS DECALS - 3 INVITE CODES - 1 BONUS CODE
After the abolition of disarmament treaties by Japan in 1936, the U.S. passed the Naval Expansion Act of Congress in May 1938, authorizing the building of new aircraft carriers. This was later expanded under the terms of the Two-Ocean Navy Act and then again with the US declaration of war.

U.S.S. Essex (CV-9) was to be the prototype and lead ship of the famous Essex Class, of which a total number of 24 ships were completed between 1941 and 1950. The design of this class aimed to increase the size of both the flight and hangar decks. These vessels also had better armor protection than their predecessors, better facilities for handling ammunition, safer and greater fueling capacity, and more effective damage control equipment.

U.S.S. Essex was laid down on the 28th of April 1941 by Newport News Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Co. It was commissioned only 19 months later on 31st December 1942, due to accelerated construction efforts after the attacks on Pearl Harbor.

Essex served in several assignments in the Pacific theatre of World War II. This included Task Force 58, during the attack against the main Japanese naval base at Truk, the Battle of Leyte Gulf in Task Force 38, which is considered the largest naval battle of that time, and the attack on the northern Philippine Islands where she was hit by a kamikaze attack. Essex also supported the attacks on the Japanese positions near the main Islands, neutralizing any remaining Japanese air power in preparation of a landing operation.

After World War II it was ordered to Bremerton, Washington for inactivation and was eventually decommissioned and sent to reserve in January 1947. It underwent a modernization cycle where a new flight deck and streamlined superstructure was installed. She was then recommissioned on 16th January 1951.

Essex served as the flagship for Carrier Division 1 and Task Force 77 during the Korean War and provided close air support for allied troops. Neil Armstrong – the future astronaut – served on the vessel at that time. After the war it had several assignments in the Pacific Fleet, the Atlantic and the Mediterranean Sea.

In 1961, Essex was ordered to provide air support to CIA-sponsored bombers during the Bay of Pigs Invasion. However, this mission was aborted by President Kennedy at the last moment and the Essex’s crew was sworn to secrecy. It was also part of the US fleet enforcing the “quarantine” of Cuba during the Cuban Missile Crisis in October 1962.

In 1968, Essex was assisting in the Apollo missions - she was the prime recovery carrier for Apollo 7. The carrier was eventually decommissioned on 30th June 1969 at the Boston Navy Yard, after nearly 23 years of active service in the US Navy.
