    Product Description
    This is a plastic model kit, which comes unassembled and unpainted. So glue, model paints and other basic modelling tools are additionally required.

    With our 1/700 scale Missouri and New Jersey making waves in the modeling world, weve
    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.
