USS Missouri BB-63 (Metal Earth 3D Laser Cut Model)
Referred to as Big Mo, this United States Navy battleship is best remembered as the site of the surrender of the Empire of Japan which ended World War II. Big Mo was commissioned in June 1944. In World War II she fought in the battles of Iwo Jima and Okinawa and later saw action in the Korean War. Big Mo was decommissioned in 1955 but reactivated and modernized in 1984 as part of the 600-ship Navy plan. In January 1991 provided fire support during Operation Desert Storm.
Create awesome, desktop-sized replicas of historical landmarks and vehicles! Each kit comes with one or two thin, flexible sheets of shiny metal with all the pieces laser cut and engraved. Follow the directions to assemble the models using tabs and slots - no glue or soldering required! When you're done, you'll have a highly-detailed model. Sizes vary, but most would fit within a 5" cube. The instructions are a bit tricky and some parts are quite small, so these would be best for older children or experienced model builders. You'll need to supply needle nose pliers, tweezers, and clippers, or purchase the Tool Kit which includes nippers, flat nose pliers and needle nose pliers. Finished models are beautiful and can be displayed on a lighted base or spinner, sold below. ICONX kits feature more detail and slightly larger models than original kits. These will take some time to assemble, but the finished product is definitely worth the effort!
