    From the Manufacturer
    HMS Illustrious (R06) is the second of three Invincible-class light aircraft carriers built for the Royal Navy in the late 1970s and early 1980s. She is the fifth warship and second aircraft carrier to be called Illustrious, and is affectionately known as Lusty to her crew. She just missed the Falklands Conflict, but was deployed to Iraq and Bosnia in the 1990s and to Sierra Leone in 2000. A massive re-fit in 2002 meant that she missed the Iraq War, but she was finished in time to assist British Citizens trapped by the war in Lebanon. 1:350 scale - Plastic scale model kit. Skill level 4 (where 1 is for the beginner and 4 is for the more experienced modeller). Dimensions length 603 x width 104mm. Number of parts 276. Construction and painting required yes, glue and paints need to be purchased separately.
