      Anita: We would first like to thank your father for his service to this great country of ours. Unfortunately we do not carry battleship models. I would suggest you check E-Bay or Amazon and possibly do a google search using key words such as “scale model” and “USS Colorado”. Good luck with your search and thank you for visiting our web-site.
