Trumpeter 1/700 USS West Virginia BB48 Battleship 1945 (New Variant)
The 1944 re-build of the West Virginia made her look significantly different than before the war and attack at Pearl Harbor. A streamlined superstructure with a single funnel faired into the tower now gave the ship a new silhouette; dual-purpose 5"/38 caliber guns, in gunhouses, gave the ship a potent antiaircraft battery. In addition, 40mm Bofors and 20mm Oerlikon batteries studded the decks, giving the ship a heavy punch for dealing with close-in enemy planes. Kit consists of over 600 parts and includes three SC-1 planes, photo-etched details and display stand.
