Commissioned on December 16 1938, Ark Royal was on the bottom of the Mediterranean by November 13 1941 but the ship had had a very busy career, most importantly launching the Swordfish aircraft that disabled the Bismarck and led to her destruction.

Ark Royal was designed and developed in the beginning age of naval air power. She had an unique double hanger decks design which facilitated larger capacity of airplanes on board, but at same time, made her more vulnerable because of a taller hull structure. Ark Royal Her short lived service career was not short with action. Her Swordfish was credit with the cripple of German Battle Ship Bismarck. Ark Royal had the reputation of being the “Lucky Ship”. Her luck finally ran out on November 14th, 1941 and sunk off Gibraltar after being torpedoed by U-81 on the day before. This is the first English Aircraft Carrier being produced in 1/350 scale. Special design hull halves to allow easy replication of the hull side storage compartments.
