1/700 U.S.S. Bon Homme Richard (CV-31) Essex-class Aircraft Carrier, Korean War

New in 1/700 scale is Dragon’s U.S.S. Bon Homme Richard (CV-31). It is modeled on the U.S. Navy’s 27,100-ton Essex-class aircraft carrier commissioned in 1944.

It also includes fighters for the Korean War era, including brand new toolings of the F9F-2 and AD attack jet aircraft, as well as the veteran F4U-F Corsair. There is even a HO3S Dragonfly helicopter! There are photo-etched parts to upgrade and improve the high-quality molded plastic parts like railings and radars.

- Newly tooled 1/700 Grumman F9F-2 Panther and Douglas AD-6 Skyraider aircraft NEW TOOLING
- 1/700 Sikorsky H-5 Dragonfly helicopter, Grumman F9F-8 Panther, McDonnell F-2H Banshee jet aircraft in clear plastic

- Flight deck elevator can be posed raised or lowered
- Hull side doors can be modelled in open, half-open or closed position

- Cartograf decal offers accurate markings

About the U.S. Bon Homme Richard:
This carrier saw combat in the final raids against Japan, but was recalled to active duty with the outbreak of the Korean War. It had a couple of combat tours in the Korean War before undergoing conversion work in 1953 to allow operations of high-performance jet aircraft. This replica shows the USS Bon Homme Richard as she appeared during the Korean War. Her aircraft launched strikes against North Korean targets such as the heavy bombing of the Sui-ho hydroelectric dam in June 1952, and on the city of Pyongyang.
