1. Fujimi SWM27 Aircraft Carrier Eagle
This model of the British Aircraft Carrier Eagle from Fujimi is at a 1/700th scale and is a great addition to any nautical-minded fan of military plastic model kits. This particular ship carries a lot of history, being purchased by the British fleet from the Chilean navy in 1918 and converted into an aircraft carrier. The ship and its crew enjoyed a long career in many battles during World War II off the coasts of Malta and Sicily, and took part in battles with the Italian navy.
This is a pretty large aircraft carrier model and doesn’t include miniature planes, but those are definitely some details that you can add yourself if you can find planes of an appropriate scale.
