The USS Bogue CVE-9 fought in WW2.  A total of 45 ships of the class were built. USS Bogue (CVE-9) was the lead ship in the Bogue-class of escort aircraft carriers in the United States Navy during World War II. She was laid down on 1 October 1941 as Steel Advocate (hull 170) under Maritime Commission contract by Seattle-Tacoma Shipbuilding in Tacoma, Washington. She was originally classified AVG-9, but was changed to ACV-9, 20 August 1942; CVE-9, 15 July 1943; and CVHP-9, 12 June 1955.

The success of using aircraft carriers brought tremendous firepower to the US Navy and Naval ground support.  An Aircraft Carrier is a battle force in itself bringing the fight to the enemy.  These model ships of the USS Bogue, CVE9 bring the history of the Navy into your home.  Building models are also a super training ground for kids, learning about construction technology and navy history all at the same time.  Building a model ship is the ultimate training tool for any kid in any family as well as bringing hours of enjoyment and fun in building models and showing the models after they were built.  If you want a smart kid, start him or her building models.  C.

In all, the Escort Carriers and their crews used in the Battle of the Atlantic sunk fifty-four German u-boats. Limited edition of 500, signed and numbered by the artist. 28"x 22".


USS Bogue CVE-9

The Bogue class escort carriers were based on the Type C3 cargo ship hull of the Maritime Commission. Most were built by the Seattle-Tacoma Shipbuilding Corporation, but some of the early examples were produced by Ingalls Shipbuilding of Pascagoula, Mississippi and by the Western Pipe and Steel Company of San Francisco, California. They all were named for sounds, and were equipped with derricks for retrieving seaplanes. Most of the ships of the class were transferred to the Royal Navy under the provisions of the Lend-Lease program; they were given new names for their RN service and returned to the U.S. Navy after the war. The first group to be transferred were known by the RN as the Attacker class; in their place replacements were constructed with the same names for the American fleet. A second group of ships were built and sent almost in its entirety to the Royal Navy, known as the Ameer class or the Ruler class in British service, and sometimes as the Prince William class in the U.S. Navy.
