This is the Niko 1/700 scale USS Iowa circa 1898. It's a great kit and I built it right out of the box. I only added stretched sprue rigging and the two flags. Everything else came with the kit including the photo etched details and railings. I used Floquil Depot Buff, Reefer White, Grimy Black, Engine Black, and Testors U.S. Army/Marine Sand for the deck, along with a water color black wash to pick out the deck details. You can't go wrong with any of the recent Niko kits.
