This is the USS Missouri BB63 as she appeared in WWII. I will both model and texture this huge thing.

Currently the front 1/3 of the ship is done excluding the hull as I just havn't done anything with it yet. I'm starting the work on the super structure but this will take awhile as there is alot of detail in that area.

If you want to see something by itself without everything else just tell me and I will post more pics.

the full ship here you can see nearly everything.

Well I see you're already over at MW.com so it appears a lot of the thunder is gone ;)

How detailed do you want to get?

Looks really good so far. BTW what's MW.com?

It might be useful to post over at Military-Meshes.com. There are one or two Iowa class projects underway over there. It might be useful to compare notes.

Ah, many thanks. Didn't know about that. I'll have to post my RN Type 23 project over there.
