The text part of this book describes history of the ship's construction and service. This is accompanied by more than 100 color illustrations showing USS Massachusetts' appearance towards the end of her service in the Pacific, 1945. Elements that are shown in detail include superstructures, armament, fire control instruments, aircraft, boats, equipment, rig, etc. Blueprints in 1:350, 1:200, 1:100 and 1:50 scales (general views and details) are included on a separate sheet. The publication is a great reference for building a detailed model of USS Massachusetts.


“For anyone interested in capital ships of the era, this is as fine and detailed an exposure as you will ever see”.

- Military History, November 2014

 “As we have seen with other  titles in this series this is a brilliantly laid out book with superbly drawn and rendered pictures plus a good potted history of this fabulous looking ship. I can highly recommend this book to all interested in the “Big Mammie” as she became to be known.”

- Britmodeller

“Another in the excellent Kagero series of Topdrawings...Recommended for the naval enthusiast, good value.”

- Scale Military Modeller International

“Excellent quality throughout and ideal for modellers looking for the detail in completing a model, in whatever scale. Kagero do a really neat job in their TopDrawings series.”
