USS Enterprise (CV-6) was the seventh U.S. Navy vessel named Enterprise. Colloquially called "The Big E", she was the sixth aircraft carrier of the United States Navy. A Yorktown-class carrier, she was launched in 1936 and was one of only three American carriers commissioned before World War II to survive the war (the others being Saratoga and Ranger). She participated in more major actions of the war against Japan than any other United States ship. These actions included the attack on Pearl Harbor (18 dive bombers of VS-6 were over the harbor; 6 were shot down with a loss of 11 men—she was the only American aircraft carrier with men at Pearl Harbor during the attack and the first to sustain casualties during the Pacific War), the Battle of Midway, the Battle of the Eastern Solomons, the Battle of the Santa Cruz Islands, various other air-sea engagements during the Guadalcanal Campaign, the Battle of the Philippine Sea, and the Battle of Leyte Gulf. Enterprise earned 20 battle stars, the most for any U.S. warship in World War II, and was the most decorated U.S. ship of World War II. She is also the first American ship to sink a full-sized enemy warship after the Pacific War had been declared when she sank Japanese submarine I-70 on 10 December 1941. On three occasions during the Pacific War, the Japanese announced that she had been sunk in battle, inspiring her nickname "The Grey Ghost".
The model was designed in a standard 1:300 scale. It consists of 2530 blocks and therefore will provide many hours of exciting construction and fun. We used high quality prints on the bricks, which accurately reproduce the painting and details of the original ship. These prints do not rub off, even during intense fun. The model comes with 10 micro airplanes and a special transparent block which, when attached to the board, can imitate the taking off plane.
To this set of USS Enterprise (CV-6) we added a special display stand, which is used to present the built aircraft carrier.The limited edition of this legendary combat unit additionally includes two black laser-fired plates with data of the mapped ship. They contain information such as: the name of the ship, authentic dimensions, model scale, individual serial number of the set. In the box you will also find the original, exclusively issued, paper certificate of authenticity (with the number according to the nameplate) in A4 format with the handwritten signature of the COBI President.
This set is extremely advanced, the edition is exclusive and therefore will certainly satisfy all fans of the Navy, history and modeling.
