Not all battleship Texas models are the same. For those of you who want to go cheap, be forewarned. Some bad models out there have hulls that contain no beautiful curves. The main guns are very wrong. The deck, if wood, look cheap in pale yellow. Railings are primitive. Quad 40 mm Bofors AA guns are very wrong or don't exist. Ladders without handrails, airplane without cockpit glass, ugly boats. It take us a mere few minutes to see those and we do not want to spend time on the worst battleship creation ever existed.

USS Texas was considered the most powerful warship afloat because of her ten 14"/45 guns in five twin turrets. She is notable for being the first US battleship to become a permanent museum ship, the first battleship declared to be a US National Historic Landmark, and is the only remaining World War I–era dreadnought battleship. She is also noteworthy for being one of only eight remaining ships and the only remaining capital ship to have served in both World Wars.

USS Texas was commissioned in March 1914, and proceeded almost immediately to Mexican waters where she joined the Special Service Squadron following the "Vera Cruz Incident." She returned to Atlantic Fleet operations in the fall of 1914, after the Mexican crisis was resolved. In 1916, USS Texas became the first U. S. battleship to mount anti-aircraft guns and the first to control gunfire with directors and range-keepers, analog forerunners of today's computers.

When the United States formally entered World War II in 1941, battleship Texas escorted war convoys across the Atlantic and later shelled Axis-held beaches for the North African campaign and the Normandy Landings before being transferred to the Pacific Theater late in 1944 to provide naval gunfire support during the Battles of Iwo Jima and Okinawa. BB-35 was decommissioned in 1948, having earned a total of five battle stars for service in World War II.
