Original construction blueprints, photographs, deck plans, books and even advertising brochures are used to guarantee the accuracy of each cutaway. Once the design work is complete, a computer-controlled laser is then used to cut and mark specially selected layers of basswood. After a layer has been cut, it is cleaned and carefully mounted to a baltic blue matte board. A total of six layers of basswood are hand assembled for each cutaway.
When the cutaway is complete, it is then sealed behind glass in a cherry finish hardwood frame. The highest level of quality in both work and materials is maintained to ensure museum quality cutaways. This integrity in both design and modeling skill has brought endorsements by many of the nation's museums, historical societies and memorial associations. The design will remain the same as pictured but, will carry your desired hull number and nameplate.
The power of the world's last active battleship lives on in this cutaway. The original 1945 design is so perfectly reproduced that it brings back memories to all of those who have seen her. The USS Missouri's keel was laid in the New York Navy Yard on January 6th, 1941 and the vessel was commissioned on June 11th, 1944.
She became Third Fleet flagship and was the site of the 2 September 1945 Japanese surrender ceremony that ended World War II. One step aboard brings back memories to many who served aboard her.
