The world's last great surface naval battle.
For most of its career, Noshiro was an extremely lucky ship. At Leyte Gulf that luck ran out. In company with a force of battleships, cruiser and destroyers, Noshiro surprised the destroyers and escort carriers of the U.S. 7th fleet. Outnumbered, outgunned and outclassed, U.S. forces proceeded to win one of the most lopsided engagements in naval history. Noshiro helped sink a carrier but was sunk by aircraft the next day. This limited edition kit features new carrier deck parts and decals for the I.J.N. 2nd fleet 2nd torpedo squadron.
