The Bogue class escort carriers were built in the United States for service with the U.S. Navy and the Royal Navy during World War II. The ships operated by the Royal Navy were renamed as the Attacker class, Ameer class, Prince William class and the Ruler class. The Bogues were completed from 1942 on and were a mass-production implementation of the Long Island class concept, based on the Maritime Commission standard Type C3 hulls, with construction taking as little as 11 months, from keel laying to completion. The typical air group had 16 fighters and 12 torpedo bombers. A total of 45 Bogue class escort carriers were built.
Any service era or vessel configuration - we can build a model of them all - your pick.

We offer our Bogue class escort carrier models in several size/scale offering. We offer these popular size/scale selections for easy check out. If you would like a quote on a size or scale, other than the selection listed, please contact us with your request. Custom orders are our specialty!
Our escort carrier models are made-to-order, meaning that we do not stock any pre-made models. Only when a customer tells us the size and/or scale desired do we build the model. Each model is exquisitely crafted by our master model builders and comes fully assembled with a solid hull - hand carved from kiln-dried mahogany. Other parts are made from a variety of woods, putty, resin and metals. Every model includes pedestals, mounted on a polished mahogany base board. Options include keel block mounting, waterline models, nameplates, ships seals and ribbons, and weathering paint schemes. As appropriate to the vessel and service era specified, scale aircraft with appropriate air wings, flagging and assorted deck machines are included.
The model build time is generally 16 weeks from receipt of the order and deposit. The normal procedure is a 50% deposit with the commissioning, with the balance due prior to shipping. Note that prior to shipping, we take a series of photos of the model and send them to you for final review and approval – so you know exactly what your model will look like and allow for any necessary modifications. Once you have approved your model, we’ll collect the final balance and she will be shipped in a robust shipping crate and insured for your protection.
We offer a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee: In the unlikely event you are not completely satisfied with your model and wish to return it, notify us within 7 days of the model delivery and we will issue a refund or exchange.
FREE SHIPPING in the USA - Note that our model prices include shipping and insurance within the USA.
Shipping costs outside the USA will depend on the model size ordered and shipping destination. You will be responsible for any applicable taxes or duties, based on the commercial invoice value for the model.
