IJN Hosho 1:400

- HOSHO CLASS AIRCRAFT CARRIER -



HISTORY

After the first experiences of aviation naval sorts with the portaidrovolanti Wakamiya in the war 1914-18, Japan decided to build two aircraft carriers, or you officially classifies better «deposit for airplanes», the Hosho and the Shokaku.

The before, whose name means flying phoenix, you/he/she was planned in December 1919 and completed in December 1922; the second, was not built instead, and you/he/she was removed by the programs to allow the construction of the two Akagis and Kaga and to reenter in the limits of the essay of Wasbington.

The Hosho was the first planned aircraft carrier as such to enter on call, because the English Furios, Argus and Eagle were converted ships and the Herme, although projected as aircraft carrier, didn't enter on call that in July 1923.

As all the aircraft carriers of the first generation, had a bridge of flight separated by the hull and sustained in the part prodiera from a series of pylon pylons, in the part instead poppiera supported on the sky of the hangar.

This bridge of flight, that was completely clear of, measured m 155,15x28.0.

Initially you/he/she had been provided of a small superstructure on the right side in which the bridge was systematized but in 1923 the superstructure you/he/she had been eliminated and the bridge moved in the superstructure prodiera under the bridge of flight, as in the American Langley and in a lot of other Japanese aircraft carriers.

The chimneys were three, on the right side, out of the bridge of flight and all abbattibilis toward the outside; also the only tree was abbattibile toward the outside.

The principal armament, constituted by 4 guns of 140 mms, you/he/she was systematized in four postings systematized to the sides of the bridge of cover: two to proravia of the bridge and two to proravia of the hangar, that resulted so you place to center ship.

The two pieces from 76 mms a.a. they were instead on the bridge of flight, one for side, to proravia of the chimneys.

To the beginning of the war such guns were disembarked and replaced with 8 gunner by 25 mms in four postings binate.

The ready airplanes in the hangar were 7 from hunting, 10 from bombardment and 4 from recognition for a total of 21 instruments; other S could be transported gotten off, for a total of 26.

To lift the airplanes up to the bridge of flight and to bring them in the hangar there were two elevators; there were not vice versa crane to lift the hydroplanes from the sea as on a lot of the aircraft carriers English and American of the epoch.

On this ship the first appontaggio of a Japanese pilot was performed (however you/he/she had been preceded on February 22 by the pilot civil English Jordan): the day May 16 th 1923 the T.V. Shunichi Kara piloting an aerial Mitsubishi 1MFl was placed on the bridge of flight.

The apparatus motor was constituted by two groups of whirlwind with gears reduction gears, that operated two helixes; the vapor was produced in 8 naphtha boilers that unloaded in the three chimneys abbattibili.

The Hosho was in China in February 1931 during the Japanese unloading to Shanghai and his/her instruments they allowed the Japanese aerial supremacy on the area of the operations.

To the beginning of the war, in December 1941, together with the Zuiho it constituted the 38 Division aircraft carrier to Admiral Kuwabara's command and takings part to the battle of the Midway of June 1942.

In 1943 you/he/she was turned to training of the pilots and you/he/she was removed so that the war operations.

For such reason you/he/she was not sunk as the other aircraft carriers and it survived since after the end of the conflict.

Its last employment saw her/it declassed to the role of ship transport for the repatriation of the Japanese troops from the territories of the Pacific.

here I am with this wonderful project created by Ted. On a scale of 1:400, not yet published, I have the honor and the burden of making the beta testers of this model.
Soon with the start of construction photos.
