Academy 1/700 Scale USS Missouri BB-63 Modeller's Edition Model Kit (AY14223)

Academy 1/700 USS Missouri BB-63 Modeller's Edition Plastic Model Kit

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.
