Product Description

Highly detailed 1/700 scale model kit of the Battleship USS Iowa (BB-61). As the lead ship of the Iowa class of battleship, the USS Iowa is notable for being the only ship of the class to have served a combat tour in the Atlantic Ocean during World War II, in which she served as a countermeasure against the German battleship Tirpitz. In April 1989 an explosion of undetermined origin destroyed her #2 gun turret, killing 47 sailors, and in 1990, the USS Iowa was decommissioned for the last time. She is now awaiting donation to a not-for-profit entity for use as a museum ship. This model kit features the battleship Iowa as she appeared during the Marianas Campaign in 1944, 2-piece hull, rotating main turret, full color painting guide, and 1/700 scale Vought OS2U Kingfisher floatplanes.

Amazingly detailed model for being such a good price. High quality model overall and has lots of little tiny details like the 20mm guns you have to put on.

**NOTICE** This is a WATERLINE series ship, so it's only half the hull so that it looks as if it's in the water. I did not know this, but all is well as I have it placed on a blue ocean printout now. Just as you see it in the picture.

The current description of this item is very accurate. It is a 1/700th scale model of the USS Iowa. This is a model you would find at a hobby shop. It requires plastic cement and paint to put together. Tamiya makes very detailed models and each part, down to the 5 inch guns, shows just that. The pieces fit together very well...much better than older Revell models I used to make. The instructions are also very clear and the large color image of the paint scheme is VERY helpful. Highly recommended model. Don't let the small size of this model scare you, the detail is incredible!

This is 1:700 scale put together model. USS Iowa is an incredible example of American fire-power that allowed the US to overcome! The super structure is fairly easy; but, when you get to the MANY machine guns, get comfortable. It's gonna take you awhile.

Beautiful KIT. Lots of parts and it goes together nicely. Lends itself to addition of PE parts for real quality. Sorry for the two individuals who complained that it wasn't a "toy". The description clearly says it is a MODEL KIT with MANY PIECES ON SPRUES.
