Features

The USS Missouri was third-in-class of the Iowa-class fast battleships that were ordered by the US Navy before the start of World War II. While third in class, the Missouri was the last to be completed before war's end and was commissioned in June 1944. Missouri moved to the Pacific after completing its trials and participated in the bombardment of several Japanese islands as well as protecting aircraft carriers operating in those areas. The Japanese surrender was accepted aboard the USS Missouri. The battleship again provided fire support during the Korean War, sat out the Vietnam War, and returned to support Operation Desert Storm before being decommissioned in 1992.

You may recall that Academy released a new-tool 1/700 USS Missouri kit in their easy-to-build series using multi-colored plastic (look here). Wanting to put the concept to the test, we conducted a quick-build of the subject and it turned out rather nice (look here). Are the details as petite as 1/700 kits from other manufacturers? Not quite, but the kit is much easier to build for younger modelers as well as for those with less dexterity for handing those tiny parts.

Academy has released this kit again, this time as a modeler's edition. What's different this time? The kit is now molded in gray styrene with the exception of the red lower hull and the black display stand. The MCP is not in this boxing and in its place are some new features of note. First, as a reminder, the features of this basic kit:

- Snap-together assembly (can use glue in quick build)
- Optional waterline display
- Optional display stand for full-hull display
- Lots of anti-aircraft batteries provided
- Nicely detailed superstructure
- Two SC-1 Seahawks and two catapults provided
