USS Lansdowne was one of the most highly decorated ships of WWII. She is modeled in 1/350 scale as she appeared and as outfitted on 2 September 1945 when she was selected to transport the members of the Japanese delegation from the Yokohama Customs House Pier to USS Missouri for the Japanese surrender ceremony.

The model is 12 inches in length and comes mounted on a fine wood base covered with a durable acrylic case. The case measures 14.5" long, 3.5" wide and 7.5" high (including base), for a nice fit on almost any shelf.

This thoroughly researched model is respresentative of many late war Gleaves Class destroyers and demonstates exact scale accuracy and unprecedented detail.
