USS Ajax AR-6 Repair Ship Model

Shown here is a 1/700th USS Ajax AR-6 ship model. This is an example of a World War II Repair Ship representing the finest in master craftsmanship. Built by Master Ship Model Builders with more than 35 years individual experience.

The USS Ajax was laid down in 1941, launched in 1942 and was not decommission until 1986, finally scrapped in 1997. Her long career earned her five battle stars for service in the Vietnam conflict.

She could travel up to 19.2 knots carrying four 5" guns. She weighed in at nearly 9,000 tons and 530' in length with a beam of more than 73'.


During her long life, USS Ajax travelled the globe many times over providing routine and major repair and service support services for vessels of all types and sizes. Common ports of call being Pearl Harbor, Leyte Gulf, Okinawa, Bikini Atoll, Vietnam and more.

We build each model by hand in the USA using only professional grade materials.
