This deck set from Wood Hunter is for the Trumpeter 1/700 USS Missouri BB-63, in her 1991 Gulf War configuration

The light-color wood decks are approximately .008"/.2mm thick, with regular planks and other deck details laser etched into the woodm and an adhesive applied to the back. A light tracing with a hobby knife is all that is necessary to free the parts.


It would appear, the parts labelled "1" and "2" are on the main sheet have been replaced with parts on a small supplemental sheet included.


The small fret of brass, relief-etched photoetch has 5 different types of parts:

  • Three styles of hose and cable Reels
  • Fairleads

The set also includes a length of copper anchor chain.


A single page of simple instructions are included, with overhead pictures showing the decks affixed to the respective plastic decks.


These decks and photoetch are of the highest quality, and are appear to be great value for the price!

Thanks to FlyHawk Models for the review sample. It is listed as #W70049 USS Missouri BB-63 (1991) with an MSRP of $13.95.
