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".
This Cobi model was designed in a standard 1:300 scale. It consists of 2510 blocks and therefore will provide many hours of exciting construction and fun. High quality prints were used 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 6 micro airplanes and a special transparent block which, when attached to the board, can imitate the taking off plane.
This set of the USS Enterprise (CV-6) has a special display stand, which is used to present the built aircraft carrier.
This set is extremely advanced, the edition is exclusive and therefore will certainly satisfy all fans of the Navy, history and modeling.
