1⁄700USS Illinois - BB7
USS Illinois (BB-7), the second ship of the United States Navy to be named for the 21st state, was a battleship, the lead ship of her class. Oddly enough two out of the three ships named for Illinois were never completed. The first was laid down in 1864 and broken up before being launched in 1872.
BB65 was also broken up prior to being launched. A full scale mock up of the Illinois was built for the 1893 Columbian Exposition, at Chicago, Illinois.
