I Love Kits 65704 USS North Carolina BB-55 Top Grade Model kit 1:700 Scale Model

The North Carolina (BB-55) was laid down 27 October 1937 at the New York Naval Shipyard; launched 13 June 1940 and commissioned at New York 9 April 1941. North Carolina completed her shakedown in the Caribbean prior to the Pearl Harbour attack, and after intensive war exercises, entered the Pacific 10 June 1942.

When the U.S. attacked Guadal canal in early August of 1942, North Carolina was the only U.S. battleship available to provide protection for the carriers Wasp CV-7, Saratoga CV-3 and Enterprise CV-6. In the Battle of the Eastern Solomon, North Carolina forever changed the role of the new battleships when she shot down seven Japanese planes in one battle. After that battle it would not be uncommon for fast a battleship to screen aircraft carriers due to their massive anti-aircraft batteries.

On the afternoon of September 15 1942, one torpedo hit the North Carolina. The torpedo hit tore a hole 10 metre long and 6 metre high in the steel plating and caused 5 dead.

She was decommissioned at New York 27 June 1947. On 29 April 1962 she was dedicated at Wilmington, N.C., as a memorial to North Carolinians of all services killed in World War II.

North Carolina received 12 battle stars for World War II service.
