1/96 Scale Model

Rob Mackie

The armoured cruiser USS Olympia was Admiral Dewey's flagship at the Battle of Manila Bay, 1898. This impressive 1/96 model resides in the Smithsonian Museum of American History, Washington, D.C.  One can see many beautiful models of Steel Navy era US ships both at the American History Museum and the Washington Navy Yard Museum. This model's large scale permits for many interesting details and should make an excellent reference should you wish to super detail your Iron Shipwright 1/350 USS Olympia or the Revell USS Olympia.
