Item Description

With our 1/700 scale Missouri and New Jersey making waves in the modeling world, we've
added fuel to the fire with our first ever model of the USS Iowa! This high quality model depicts
the Iowa, namesake and first of the Iowa class battleships, as she appeared in WWII.


About the USS Iowa
Commissioned in February 1943, the USS Iowa served briefly in the Atlantic before departing for the Pacific Theater in January 1944. She served mainly to support carrier based air strikes against Japanese-held islands, protecting said carriers and shelling enemy shore and naval positions. She took part in the Marianas campaign and the Battle of Leyte Gulf,
although she missed a chance for a showdown with the Japanese battleship Yamato. After assisting the assault on the Philippines, Iowa took part in the Okinawa invasion as well as supporting air strikes on Kyushu. Together with sister ships USS Missouri and USS Wisconsin, Iowa bombarded industrial cities on the Japanese homeland towards the end of the war.

Really impressive! The detail is breathtaking, and the way the parts fit reminds me that plastic model technology has really advanced over the years. The kit is virtually seamless. But 1700 scale means many of the parts are quite small. Bring quality tweezers and a lot of patients, but expect to be thrilled with the final results.
