An Aircraft Carrier…In 1/144

Japanese aircraft carrier Akagi Ship

Eishindo is known for its very tiny model  trains. In fact, the Japanese company makes the smallest model trains in the world. But, the company makes other scale models as well, including a 1/144 Japanese aircraft carrier, the Akagi.

While Eishindo’s version of the Japanese aircraft carrier is small compared to the actual vessel itself, the 1/144 scale model is still a whopping 7.5 feet long. If the size of the model does not raise some eyebrows, the price sure will, a whopping ¥880,000 or $11,200, plus delivery.
