About The USS Antietam,
USS Antietam (CV-36) was an Essex class aircraft carrier commissioned in the closing months of WWII on January 28 1945, too late to see any combat. (Incidentally, the name “Antietam” commemorates a famous battle of the American Civil War, the bloodiest single-day battle in American history, where 23,000 casualties were incurred). The USS Antietam was stationed in the Far East for three years until 1949, its air wing providing support for Allied occupation forces in China, Manchuria and Korea. When the Korean War broke out in 1950, USS Antietam was reactivated, thus participating in the only operational deployment of her career. The carrier was stationed off the coast of Korea, its aircraft supporting UN forces with a variety of missions against North Korean targets.

Dragon has produced a 1/700 scale version of this carrier. It has received a brand new angled deck, which differentiates it from previous Essex class carriers in the Dragon range. The model ship comes with both a full hull and waterline hull for greater modeling choice. This outstanding kit also sports a new superstructure. Complementing the plastic parts is a series of photo-etched components offering even superior detail. The carrier includes a complete set of scale aircraft and helicopters (e.g. F-4U, F-9F-8, AD6, Dragonfly) produced in clear plastic. This is another hot addition to the U.S. Navy’s carrier fleet, and at 1/700 scale, it’s a lot more compact than the original!
