USS WISCONSIN BB-64
Battleship model

USS Wisconsin BB-64 was built at the Philadelphia Navy Yard and launched in December of 1943.

USS Wisconsin served in World War II in which she shelled Japanese fortifications at Leyte Gulf, and screened US aircraft carriers. During the Korean War she shelled North Korean targets in support of UN and South Korean ground operations.  USS Wisconsin BB 64 earned a total of six battle stars in both wars. 

After the Korean War, USS Wisconsin was decommissioned into the United States Navy reserve fleets. She was reactivated and modernized in 1986 as part of the "600-ship Navy" plan.  She participated in the 1991 Gulf War and earned a Navy Unit Commendation for service during the 1991 Gulf War.

BB-64 was last decommissioned in September 1991.  She currently functions as a museum ship at Nauticus, The National Maritime in Norfolk, Virginia.  On 17 March 2006, USS Wisconsin was struck from the Naval Vessel Register.

Like all of our warship models, this USS Wisconsin battleship model has the following qualities:

- Plank-on-frame, hollow hull construction, weighing less than 15 lbs  (A solid hull of this model would be over 50 lbs, requiring 2 people to handle and a fortified table to accommodate.)

- Hollow superstructure comprised of many individual thin pieces of wood glued together, not few blocks stacking on top one another.

- Windows are cutouts (not black decals), thanks to the hollow structures.

- Light rust appearance to give the ship a tough battle look.

- >95% of parts are wood and metal
