This WWII USS South Dakota BB-57 battleship kit is 12 inches long and 1/700 scale. This plastic kit can create either a waterline or full hull version. This famous battleship was the lead ship of a class of 35,000 ton battleships.
The USS South Dakota, lead ship of a class of 35,000-ton battleships, was built at Camden, New Jersey. She was commissioned in March 1942.
From October 1944 to the end of World War II, she screened carrier task forces during strikes in the Western Pacific that ranged from the South China Sea to Japan. The invasions of Leyte, Luzon, Iwo Jima and Okinawa were among these operations. In March and April 1945, the USS South Dakota joined in bombarding Okinawa. She returned to the United States soon thereafter and was decommissioned in January 1947.
