I didn’t want this under the “modeling” topic because it would not be appropriate as it was built in China. I assume it is for our built models? I had posted about this in the “cool pix” and said it was assembled in Japan but the little tag that came with it says assembled in China. As I said before from the Franklin Mint. So I drove up two hours to Allentown today and purchased it from a friend who’s father was on the ship at the Surrender in 1945. He was in the U.S. Navy for three years and then worked for Mack Trucks Inc. in Allentown, Pennsylvania until he retired. He was a member of the USS Missouri Association. He passed away in 2013. The little anchor pin was his so I left it with the ship. Probably would have made for better photos but I chose to leave the top of the case on anyway. Deck painted blue as it was at that time.
