About this title


11 x 8 paperback. 64 pages, 55 b/w and 80 color photos, color profiles representing 3 camouflage schemes (MS 22, MS 32 design 1B, MS 32 design 22D) plus detailed plan and profile line drawings. The Iowa class were the largest, fastest and most modern US battleships ever completed, and the formal surrender of Japan was signed on the deck of one of them, USS Missouri. Modernized post-war, they served in Korea, Vietnam and as late as the first Gulf War. They are among the most popular subjects of all for model kits. Includes summary of design history and careers, full details of class variations and modifications, color reference for paint schemes, gallery of photographs of outstanding models, critical reviews of available kits and sources of further information from books to websites.
