1/350 Uss Missouri 1991
And here’s my newest and latest model finished just today!
The Uss Missouri , not needing any introduction, though maybe in a not so often seen configuration.
As she appeared in 1991 while participating in operation Desert Storm.
Base kit was Tamiyas old lady, though dressed up and detailed to extreme.
I used the Pontos advanced set as a base for details, coupled with some Infinis magnificent harpoon launchers and open tomahawk launcher! After that the rest of the various details and modifications were produced in brass and styrene by scratchbuilding using reference as guide.
Airbrushed with Tamiya acrylics and weathering done with the usual AK , Ammo and W&N products.
Took me about 6 months to finish while applying all the tricks and nicks from my previous build to a much larger project. Sometimes even daunting the ammount of detail and parts but hopefully the end result speaks for itself!
