1/700 BB-35 USS Colorado 1944 (Trumpeter)

BB-45 1944
She departed on 5 May passing Pearl Harbor and Kwajalein to the pre-invasion shelling at Saipan, Guam, and Tinian after 14 June. During the shelling of Tinian on 24 July she was damaged, 43 men were killed, and 198 wounded by 22 shell hits from Japanese shore batteries.
My work's concept is the Colorado's tired appearance, after battle of Tinian.
I will make a water base, later.

  5. Amazing in 1/700.

    Not a complaint or criticism, but you might want to align the Kingfisher a tiny bit.

  6. You are one of the few ship modelers, who go all out when weathering your ships, does it convincingly and also below the waterline. I really enjoy looking at your works.

  7. Great job! Interesting to see that she kept her birdcage mast through out her career.

  8. Very cool build. Really convincing.
