USS Missouri
About this creation
Several years ago I ordered the original shipyard plans of the USS Missouri from a U.S. shop for the needs of the model builder. I would like to show you the result of nearly two years of weekend work.

The scale of the model is approximately 1:45. It was build as a waterline model - the length is 6,1m and it is 0,8m wide. The 16 inch main artillery is motor-operated so you can turn the turrets and lift the guns by remote control. All other guns, gun directors, radars and doors are also moveable. I try to display much details as possible but sometimes the bricks set boundaries. In spite of this I hope the recognition of this great ship is successful.

I hope you enjoy the photos. The pictures were taken on some exhibitions, where the model was displayed.

Unbelievable! Great work and the scale is amazing. I like the "old school" lego build: not relying on specialty parts and building everything from scratch. Top notch and well done!

Incredible. Excellent details and hard work. The scale is perfect for minifigs, isn´t it? A few minifigs would give an extra! Congratulations.

WUNDERBAR! You have joined the minifig warship club...the best of the best. Move over Yamato, Hood, Intrepid, we have a new WW2 warship in town called the U.S.S. Missouri. :-)

Excuse the re-addition of my earlier comment. The original lost the "I Like It" and I was trying to rectify that :)

Impressive! This creation goes into the category of the ones that come up every now and then: ones that are huge, well made, and fine in technique and detail, and that especially catch the eye. This is a great example of this, and I sincerely hope you continue with your building talent- thanks for posting, congrats on such a great first creation!

Amazing what kind of details can be achieved when building on this scale! You've outdone yourself on this one. The original one appears in my favourite Steven Seagal film: Under Siege

Nice work! I've also *tried* a USS Missouri (though on a massively smaller scale), and that ship has some really tough angles and such to build in :-0 Simply phenomenal work, and welcome to MOCpages ;-D

Wow. I cannot think of any way to describe this beast of a ship. This is just incredible, so accurate and just plain huge! Motorized guns and everything. This must of cost a small fortune.

Holy smokes! There's big and there's big, but this is huuuge! The details and sheer scale of this model are jawdropping, I could look at this for hours. Superb job!
  January 22, 2014
I am just dumbfounded when I see a creation like this. It is almost inconceivable to me that one person could do something like this in just a few years. The level of detail on this model is fantastic -- I'd expect that if I were to see it in person, I could probably spend an hour or two taking in all of its glory. Absolutely phenomenal effort!
