1/200 Trumpeter Missouri

Going to try and tackle this in RC. I am a BEGINNER. Can someone point me towards the "innards" i will need for this ship? Motors batteries, servos, recievers, and radio. I would appreciate any help.

Ty Pat. Not a beginner to the modeling part. Actually built a 1/350 Yamato and Musashi RC about 20 years ago. Just don't remember and had a lot of help.

Start the build log here in the forum if you wish. Post photos and questions and the members will guide you along the way. These kits are still fairly new and there's not a great many assembly logs on the web so your effort would be fairly (if not completely) unique on RCG. There's a 1/200 Bismarck build underway but no Iowa class if memory serves.

The Missouri by Dean's Marine is from a vendor (more of a 'proof of concept' than a build log) so it doesn't count.

Good price on the Missouri. If you share it on Facebook you get an extra %25 off.

Total $211.49. Free shipping. Got mine there.

Put this on your old post also Pat.

Awesome! Care to share your build details?

I have a 1/350 Otaki New Jersey that appears to be in 1946-1948 guise right before she went into reserve. Remove the floatplanes and catapults and she's a dead ringer for her Korean War appearance. Pretty unique kit as other kit makers do their Iowas in either WWII or modern guise, no in-betweens.

Have been looking for the old version of New Jersey. Have as mentioned before just finished a modern version of New Jersey scale 1:350

Okay, one more opinion from you guys.....Going to go with the measure 32/22D camo.....deck better in blue or wooden color. I personally like the wooden color. Let me know your thoughts.

Hold it! Don't do 5/32 tubing for the entire length of the shaft--too much potential for power-robbing friction. Just use 5/32 for the bearings on the stuffing tube, at each end with a larger diameter (next size up) tubing for the body of the tube. Construct it like this:




Grease tube could be optional but I like the idea of easy lubrication; a few drops of med weight oil before each run...

So you'll have two Missouri's in measure 32/22d with incorrect bare wood decks, if you go with your preference. I don't see the problem going with what you like. But a bare teak deck is incorrect for WWII.

You could do a weathered, stain/paint-peeling deck blue 20-B like this:



...Missouri was haggard, weather-beaten and war-torn especially at Tokyo bay and you could absolutely show a lot of teak showing through. But this is merely my humble opinion only, for what it's worth, your mileage may vary.
