Revell 1/426 U.S.S. Arizona
This is Revell’s Arizona that I built for the second time. It went together well and before I started I wanted it to be a waterline model. I cut off the bottom half of the hull and I have a hope someday that I will put in a water setting. The main problem I had was the one tower on big “stilts” it wouldn’t go in right and I had to cut some plastic off the legs. The main flag bar is a toothpick. I drilled all of the gun barrels out with a tiny drill bit and they were worth the time doing it. I painted the deck wood and then weathered it with different colors. I had no figures to put on the ship but I’m not that worried about it. The 3rd gun down the row of big guns (front to back) has a plane launcher on it. I cut off one plane and the other I suspended from its pick-up crane. I rigged the whole ship with EZ-Line after trying hair and stretched spruce. I hope all of you guys like it and give me some good ideas. Nate Kiker
