Beautifully detailed and unmatched in the industry, the
Graupner USS Missouri is one of our Premium Line of historical ships that will
not disappoint you. Arriving Almost
Ready to Run, the motors and rudder servo are already placed, and only the
radio and electrical system need be installed before the boat is
water-ready. For reliability,
performance, further telemetry and model-specific function expansion we highly
recommend a Graupner radio such as the mc-16.
The Graupner Premium Line ships are carefully handcrafted
and assembled using CNC processing to replicate the model as originally as
possible. The hull is made from molded GRP complemented by the superstructure
and deck which are constructed from laser-cut ABS parts. Many of the small
items are made from metal, and almost everything is factory-assembled. The
hull, parts of the superstructure, the masts and fittings are spray painted
using semi-matt paints. Decals are already applied. With so many details and scale
fittings, the Premium Line ships all have an impressive scale appearance.
The USS Missouri ("Mighty Mo") is a former United
States Navy Iowa-class battleship. It was put into service in 1944, taking part
in the Pacific theatre of World War II beginning in 1945. On September 2, 1945,
the USS Missouri made history when Japan's political and military
representatives surrendered on the fore deck, thus ending the Second World War.
From 1950 onwards the battleship was deployed in the Korean War, after which it
was decommissioned into the reserve fleets. It remained here until 1984 when it
was significantly modernized and deployed in the Second Gulf War. Today the USS
Missouri is berthed at Pearl Harbor (Hawaii), where it can be visited in its
capacity as a museum ship.

The boat is very detailed with all the motors and drive line installed it is easy to get up in a few hours.
It is well built and looks like the real boat. Hull is quality and many people came by to see her operate in the water. AT about 5 feet it is very impressive.
