1/700 USS Alabama

September 9, 2018 · in Ships · · 11 Comments

Hi All!
Modeling the ships I visit, I would like to present my (BB-60). The kit is the , , USS Alabama and detailed with Tom’s Modelworks USS South Dakota Class photo-etched set.
Unfortunately I do not have any actual pics of my time visiting the “Mighty A” and I hope my model pics are okay.

You can visit the ship at Memorial Park, located in Mobile, Alabama And while you are in the area stop over to the National Naval Aviation museum in Pensacola, Florida. Both great places.

Until next time. Keep on modeling and keep it FUN!

  1. fabulous detail...fabulous painting...fabulous base

  2. The pics are better than ‘ok’ - fantastic detail work (especially good PE work in 1/700) and the overall feel is just brilliant. Love it.

  3. Nice job on my favorite ship! I’ve been aboard her almost 20 times and never tire of the experience. Attached is a pic of my better half aboard her when we visited last month.

    • Thanks John! Unfortunately we were pressed for time so I did not get much of a chance to check out the aircraft and armor collection but did the self tour of the ship. I am planning to get back there again sometime in the future.

  4. Nicely done Gary, spent some time touring her in 1968. After checking out the insides of a main gun turret, I often wondered what it was like in there when the guns went off. Scary stuff.

  5. Love this ship...great job with the model.

  6. Fabulous is definitely the operative term here. You guys who do 1/700 and make it look like 1/350 get my attention for sure.

  7. Well done, Gary! I'm with Tom - your 1/700th scale ship looks much bigger because of your fine detail.


  8. Thanks all for the kind words.

  9. Very nice work! Just working on a light cruiser in 1:700 and I know how much patience has to go in such kits in that scale!
