A USS Missouri model is a great addition to any collection.  Buying a USS Missouri model can be easy as long as you know what size or scale you are looking for. The USS Missouri was the last battleship built by the United States. It was on site during the surrender of the Empire of Japan which ended World War II. Missouri then steamed with the carriers to Iwo Jima where her main guns provided direct and continuous support to the invasion landings begun on 19 February. During strikes against targets along the coast of the Inland Sea of Japan beginning on 18 March, Missouri shot down four Japanese aircraft.

These are just a few reasons why this battleship is so popular with model makers.  In most cases the larger the scale the more money the model costs.  A variety of scale models of the Missouri offers collectors a large assortment of selections.

Die Cast USS Missouri Models

Some of the most popular USS Missouri models are die cast versions.  Die cast USS Missouri models have moving elements much like the plastic versions but tend to be much more durable.   If you do not have time to construct a USS Missouri model die cast versions make a excellent option.

Plastic USS Missouri Models

Plastic models are generally much less expensive than die cast versions of the Missouri.  These models have been created by many different companies, each one with its personal level of complexity.  Most levels are posted on the face of the packaged model.  If you are searching for a enjoyable battleship model to assemble you will want to think about a plastic version of the USS Missouri.

      Hi Sandra: Sorry for the delay in our response. We’ve been having internet challenges. Try the e-bay link at the bottom of the information page on the USS Missouri. We do not carry any at our museum store. Good luck and thank you for visiting our web-site.

    Sandra: You might want to try the Tamiya 1/350 scale of the USS Missouri. The detail and fits are excellent, but it is plastic and not die-cast. Also, there are follow-on brass photo-etch parts from Gold Medal Models that really add to the realism.
