USS Missouri BB-63 was the third ship of the venerable Iowa class of battleships built during World War II. She is modeled here, in 1/350 scale, as she appeared and as outfitted in her unique MS-32 camouflage while on her Atlantic shakedown and training cruise between July 23 and December 14, 1944. Since her deck was the site of the WWII Japanese surrender, she is history's only ship to be designated a National Historical Site.

This amzingly detailed model is 29.5 inches in length and comes mounted on a fine wood base covered with a durable acrylic case that measures 31" long, 6.5" wide and 11" high (including base).
