"Awesome kit of the Mighty Mo."
davezz4 (Schaumburg, IL)
Excellent kit of the Mighty Mo. I built the World War II version. The photoetch really make the ship come to life. The assembly was easy but takes a while due to the numerous parts. This makes a great addition to anyone who collects and builds 1/350 scale ships. Well worth the cost and time to build it.

"U.S.S. Missouri"
This is a really well detailed kit. It does have a lot of very small easy breakable pieces, so be careful. I ordered the wood deck decal which makes the kit look very nice, however the decal is for the 1945 version and doesn't match the 1991 version. BE SURE WHICH ONE YOU GET.

"Best Model in it's class"

After opening the box I knew that I made the right decision in buying this model. It is well constructed with a lot of attention to detail. The instruction manual is in many languages and may pose a small problem and will take time to read through it, but well detailed. It will take time to build, but will worth it.

Let me start by saying, I do not the ship is worth the cost of $130.00. It was a good ship to assemble but I couldn't believe how many parts that wasn't used. You are paying for a lot parts not being used. The direction was easy to follow for the most part. There was little to no problem with parts fitting. The paint scheme is excellent. There is a large amount of small parts but they were manageable to work with. This is a large ship, I think a little over 30. The paint scheme calls fo two paint to be mixed but I didn't have enough on hand so I used Intermediate Blue. The paint scheme called for Field Blue and Light Grey to be mixed.


Due to small parts that could cause a choking hazard please kee away from children 3 years of age and younger.
