This is a set of injection-plastic detailing parts for use with ship models.
The Missouri is the third Iowa-class battleship of the United States Navy. The 16-inch 50-caliber gun Mk.7 mounted on the Iowa-class ships was based on the North Carolina-class and South Dakota-class 16-inch 45-caliber Mk.6 gun. The Mk.7 used the same ammunition as the Mk.6, but its barrel is longer, and the charge has been changed to a low-pressure charge for the long barrel to increase its power by gaining initial velocity. The turret and hydraulic system have also been redesigned. The long-barreled Mk.7 has a faster muzzle velocity, which reduces the effects of wind, has a longer range than the Mk.6, and has increased power and shooting accuracy at close range.
