The Nagato-class battleships were a pair of dreadnought battleships (Nagato and Mutsu) built for the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) during World War I. The Nagato served as the flagship for Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto during the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 that triggered American entrance into the Pacific War.

Bancroft’s Elite Series of warships continues with the 1/200 scale Battleship Nagato.

Over 400 total parts and 100 man-hours of work are already completed for you. Delivered Ready to Run (RTR), the vessel can be sailing within minutes of arrival, using the included 2.4Ghz radio transmitter and 2s Li-Ion battery. Only four AA batteries and minimal final assembly is required.

P1/200 Scale

1/200 Scale

1/200 scale is the ideal "Daily Driver" size for battleships, being the best balance between large size for stable sailing and high detail, and a lightweight hull for convenient transportability.

Important Information - Please Read

Bancroft model boats are molded and hand finished using very intricate details and parts including metal, wood, plastic, and fiberglass. Because of their hand made nature, minor imperfections in the fiberglass, metalwork, or painting may exist. These potential imperfections will not affect the seaworthiness of the vessel or the overall scale boating experience. Bancroft scale RC boats are fragile so care should be taken when moving or transporting your model.

Some of the electronics in this Bancroft boat, including the Battery, ESC, Motor, and Receiver, are NOT intended to get wet; they are NOT water resistant. If any of these electronic components get wet and you attempt to operate your model, the water can cause an electrical short-circuit and void your warranty. In the rare instance that you get water inside your vessel, you should drain the water completely and allow all electronics to fully dry before attempting to operate your model.
