This is an injection-plastic ship model kit.
The French battleship Richelieu was planned as a larger, modern version of the Dunkerque-class battleships. The ship was not even completed when France surrendered to Germany in 1940, but she later joined the Allied forces and was finally completed in New York in 1943. After serving with the Allies in the Atlantic and Pacific, she was present in Tokyo Bay for the signing of the Japanese Instrument of Surrender on September 2, 1945. She served until 1958, and was finally scrapped in 1968.
This Pit-Road model is the result of another great collaboration with Trumpeter. A full-hull or waterline model, the kit can be built as the Richelieu appeared in 1943 or 1946. Includes a nice drydock-style stand with nameplate for the full-hull version.
