Here are photos of my BB-11 USS Missouri of the Maine class. The Maine class with their three very long funnels were very elegant ships, especially before their being fitted with cage masts. I would have preferred to build a model of the ship before modernization, but the only plans I had were of the ship after conversion to cage masts prior to WWI. The model is in based upon the Wisswesser plans I obtained from the Maryland Silver Company some time back. I know these plans are not famous for their accuracy, but they capture the look of the ship. Scale is 1/550.
