The American battleship USS “California” has almost thirty years of extraordinary history. Commissioned in 1921, it was one of the most powerful battleships of the US Navy in the interwar period. It was characterized by an interesting and harmonious silhouette, which changed significantly several times. During the war, despite its age, the ship was still modern and heavily armed.

The USS California, known among naval enthusiasts and often chosen by modelers, became the subject of another study by Witold Koszela, who in a series of precise drawings recreated the silhouette of this battleship from the Second World War.
On 24 A4 pages and 2 folded sheets we can find a historical description, technical data and professional drawings showing the ship in the years 1944–1945, as well as drawings of superstructures, armaments and details, together with sectional views and color charts.
