JUST ARRIVED IN STOCK - HIGHLY DETAILED MODEL
The USS Missouri, a 45,000-ton Iowa class battleship built by the New York Navy Yard, was commissioned on 11 June 1944. She spent the remainder of that year preparing for combat, transiting to the Pacific in November. Arriving in the war zone in January 1945, Missouri supported the Iwo Jima invasion, the Ryukyus campaign, and raids on Japan's home islands during the following months. In May, she became the Third Fleet flagship and was the site of the 2 September 1945 Japanese surrender ceremony that ended World War II.
The Academy kit is in the international scale of 1/400 making it compatible with other ship models in this scale such as Heller from France.
