The Fleet Is In!


USS Saratoga, one of the first US Navy ships to grapple with the Imperial Japanese Fleet

Ordinarily, Memorial Day Weekend signifies the start of Fleet Week here in New York City, but it looks as if the warships have entered port a bit early this year. This week, we received no less than eight new 1:1250 scale capital ships from DeAgostini’s Warships of the Second World War collection. Priced at just $21.99 apiece, these warships have been flying off of our warehouse shelves since they started arriving a few years ago and represent fitting tributes to the men and machines that prowled the high seas during World War II. The new ships include:

  • Royal Navy Vanguard Class Battleship – HMS Vanguard (23)
  • Imperial Japanese Navy Kongo Class Battleship – Kirishima
  • Royal Navy King George V Class Battleship – HMS King George V (41)
  • Royal Navy King George V Class Battleship – HMS Anson (79)
  • Royal Navy Renown Class Battlecruiser – HMS Renown (72)
  • US Navy Pennsylvania Class Battleship – USS Pennsylvania (BB-38)
  • Royal Navy Nelson Class Battleship – HMS Nelson (28)
  • US Navy Lexington Class Aircraft Carrier – USS Saratoga (CV-3)
