"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.

"This kit is pretty bad. Shame on Revell"
Shane S. (Dallas, Tx)
It is very obvious that Revell has been using these molds non stop since they were created in 1953. There is heavy mold flash on every part and the details on the funnel, superstructure, etc are very smooth and faded looking. Couple that with the extremely poorly molded hull I'm debating whether this model is worth even spraying with paint. Coming right off of the Revell 1/426 USS Arizona kit I was expecting this kit to be in similar shape. While the Arizona kit wasn't a real great mold it was serviceable with some work and actually makes for a fairly nice display. But when comparing the dates, the molds of Arizona are 6 years newer than Missouri. (1959). The Missouri hit is pretty bad. I could probably make it look decent but it's going to take a lot of work. And without adding a lot of photo etch the details are going to suck anyway.. Bear in mind that nearly EVERY single kit I built growing up, and now up to and including Arizona which I just finished a few weekends ago, were Revell kits. I'm their biggest fan. Usually their kits, while not being the greatest detail, offer the best value out there for a decent representation in a kit that's easy to build. But not Missouri. This kit is garbage. I'm going to have to do some soul searching to decide whether I want to invest a lot of time and materials into what at best is going to be an average looking end result. Which is a shame because 1/535 is a great scale for an Iowa class for somebody that doesn't have room for a 1/350. I'm half tempted to send Revell an email about this. If I were offering model kits i'd never have let this pass QA.

 
"An OK Kit That Disappoints, but Looks OK When Completed."

After reading all of the other comments on this kit, I can only say that they are, indeed, quite accurate. I have returned to model building as a hobby after a long, long absence - my last kit was in 1986! So, I bought Revell's Arizona, and I enjoyed it very much. I had passed over the Big Mo a number of times, and finally said to myself, Why not? This will be a good trial run for the 1/200th which I'm planning to build in the future as a display piece for my bar. Needless to say, the critics are right. Flash? There's more flash on this kit than I anticipated. In fact, while an easy build, you actually spend a lot more time trimming the pieces to make them look relatively decent than you do gluing and putting it together. I found myself hungry. I have a budget for model kits and buy about two a month. So, when I bought Mo I thought, well, this is it - until I opened the kit and actually built it. My biggest disappointment was there are no propeller drive shafts! One other commentator here outlined the history of why that happened in the manufacturing process. But, seriously, Revell!? Can we get a new mold for this iconic piece of WWII history? The good news is that after you've removed all of the flash and excess trim, lined up the parts and painted it, the boat doesn't look too bad on my book shelf. I'll save my real modeling joy, however, for the 1/200th scale beast. That's the Mo I'm looking forward to, and while this one, obviously, doesn't live up to my expectations for the 1/200th, I do think that it's an OK model for someone who's never worked in this medium before. I liked, I guess, but was disappointed at the same time by the lack of quality. How so? So bad that I had to go out immediately and get the B-25 Mitchell 1/48th, which is a GREAT kit, and which scratched my monthly model itch quite nicely.

 
"OK Kit"
mirecyli
Haven't modeled a military ship since the sixties but I know I did this one. At that time I knew nothing about modeling but loved WWII and built everything I could get my hands on. All that stuff has been long gone. I was disappointed with this kit not knowing what to expect after so many years. It is simple and poor in detail but as good as it can be in this small scale. I may go bigger but my first love is aircraft and those are more possible to be seen in person. The only ships I have visited are the aircraft carrier at Pensacola, the U.S.S. Alabama in Mobile, AL and the U.S.S. Texas in Houston, TX.

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.
