1st 1/700 Dragon Model kit with one piece molded hull with full deck!

1/700 U.S.S. Pennsylvania BB-38, "Super-dreadnought" Battleship, 1944

This kit portrays the Pennsylvania as it appeared later in WWII, so many of the components (e.g. bridge, armaments, radar) are completely different to those used on the U.S.S. Arizona, which was sunk in the Pearl Harbor attack. The hull is molded as a single piece with an integral full deck. This innovative hull is a breakthrough and results in a much easier build for modelers. Apart from the impressive new hull, there is a plethora of newly tooled plastic and photo-etched parts to fit out and embellish this fine battleship model. This kit marks a step ahead in technological innovation, and is ready to slice through the waves!

Main Features:
- First ever one-piece molded hull with full deck
- Slide-mold technology allows undercut details to be represented
- Deck wood pattern finely rendered
- Completely new bridge created for Pennsylvania BB-38 - Photo-etched parts to upgrade details on radar
- Improved 120mm guns
- Accurate twin 20mm single-mount guns
- Finely detailed 40mm Bofors quad mount cannons
- Slide-molded 5-inch twin gun turrets
- Photo-etched railings
- Newly tooled & fully detailed PT109 boat
- Cartograf decal offers accurate marking

About the U.S.S. Pennsylvania BB-38:
Launched on 16 March 1915, the USS Pennsylvania (BB-38) was the lead ship in her “super-dreadnought” battleship class. When the Japanese made their surprise attack on Pearl Harbor on 7 December 1941, the Pennsylvania was in dry dock and it was one of the first ships to open fire on enemy dive bombers. It was strafed in the attack and suffered 15 KIA and 14 MIA. Later the battleship was to participate in the Aleutian, Saipan, Guam, and Leyte Gulf campaigns, and was involved in more than its fair share of combat in the Pacific theater. At the end of its life, the USS Pennsylvania suffered the “ignominy” of becoming a target ship in nuclear tests at Bikini Atoll in 1946.
