1/700 U.S. Battleship BB-63 Missouri (Finished Model)
The Last Surrender
Commissioned in 1944, the USS Missouri, or "Mighty Mo", measured 270m long and 33m wide and boasted an amazing output of 212,000hp. For her main armament, she had three turrets of 50 caliber 40.6cm Mk7 triple guns, ten turrets of 38 caliber 12.7cm Mk28 double guns, twenty turrets of 40mm quadruple guns and forty-nine 20mm machine guns. After taking part in many significant battles, including the Iwo Jima landings, she bombarded the Japanese mainland and capital before entering Tokyo Bay on August 29, 1945. On September 2, a Japanese delegation came aboard the Missouri to sign an unconditional surrender, bringing an official close to WWII and ensuring Missouri her place in history. The BB-63 Missouri later served in the Korean War and, after being refit with modern electronics and weapons systems, the 1991 Gulf War. She is now preserved as a museum in Hawaii.
