Revell USS Missouri One of the nation's most powerful naval vessels, the U.S.S. Missouri was the last of fourIowa class battleships - the largest battleships built by the U.S.N. Her active combat operations included the period from the two Iwo Jima landings in February of 1945 to the end of the fighting in September.
The most memorable mission of the "Might Mo" was when she was chosen as the scene of the historic signing of the peace treaty with Japan. General Douglas MacArthur presided as the Supreme Commander for the Allied Powers. After the signing of the surrender documents, a plaque was placed on the deck that reads: "Over this spot on 2 September 1945 the instrument of formal surrender of Japan to the Allied Powers was signed, thus bringing to a close the Second World War." This kit contains a copy of the plaque.
