"Great Ship for The History Buff"
JesusFreak
This model was well detailed for its price! I like that it was flat bottomed so I could set it on my table as a sort-of waterline diorama if I cared to. It also came with two supports to display it on as well. The various smaller ship's guns were easy to install, and if one wishes, I believe they can be melted at their ends so that the guns can swivel on the ship.I found that the large gun barrels were hard to slide into their bases; however, it would be easy to shave off a little of the base to get a smooth fit. The painting of the deck was a bit tricky because of tight spaces. A steady hand could still do remarkably well. The kit included three decals for the two ship's numbers and its name. It also included a sheet of paper signal flags and a paper U.S. flag. No wire (for rigging) was included. Test fit all smoke stacks and towers before gluing them to the ship as I vaguely remember the directions misguiding me as to which piece to attach first! This problem I believe is easy to overcome if one hasn't already glued them to the ship. Overall, I think this is a great model for anyone, especially history buffs, as this is the USS Missouri. General Douglas MacArthur accepted, on behalf of the United States of America, Japan's formal surrender of World War Two on the deck of this ship. The Missouri served in WWII, the Korean War, and in the Persian Gulf. It also supported troops in Operation Desert Storm. It truly was an incredible ship with an incredible history.

"Good All Around Build"
j.shields28
The model is considerably detailed for the amount of pieces it has, which is just over 60. It comes with papers commemorating the Japanese surrender on its deck in Sept. 1945. The ship is a good build for someone who's more of a beginner at modeling and wants to slowly build their way up to more complicated models. The rigging and the directions for it are a little complicated but other than that, excellent model and directions.

 
"Great kit of the 'Mighty Mo', site of the Japanese surrender"
cdnmodeller (Edmonton, AB)
I built this kit quite a long time ago, after seeing it in a WW 2 documentary. It was my re-entry into the world of modeling after a lengthy absence. This kit represents the 'Mighty Mo' as she appeared in 1945, at the time of the Japanese surrender on her deck. The parts detached from the molds quite easily & went together well. Most of the parts are quite easy to handle even for someone with big fingers like me. Almost 20 years after I first built it I still have it. Certainly worth picking up!

 
"The worst model I have made"
briand_97
Flash is everywhere on this model, the parts are ill-fitting and the detail is laughable at best (the planes are particularly horrible). I wasn't expecting perfection for a $20 model but honestly, the underachieved based on a really low expectation. I would not recommend this except for a first model that is meant to be tossed soon after completion.

Comments

  • Keep away from small children, as parts may cause choking in infants.
  • For ages 10 and up.
  • Revell-Monogram has three skill level models, 1 being the easiest, 3 being the most challenging.
  • It's recommended to use only Revell cement, since this kit is molded of styrene plastic.
