Yes, Pacific Theater and only very late in the war, 1944 and later which is why so few were made and most converted for civilian resale. My first target, the Iowa, which is berthed nearby was in the Pacific which is kind of what got me started on this.

I wish mine were in better shape, but serendipity and all that.

I've only seen one with the original tags, and it was a fully restored kit with flash and way out of my price range.

Both theaters were using Anniversary graphics, which would have been easier to work with in hindsight
