Trumpeter “USS Texas BB-35” 1/350 scale

April 16, 2020 · in Ships · · 6 ≡

This model was a gift I received for Christmas, and I completed it yesterday. I’m sure someone more skilled than we could have completed it sooner, but I digress. All things aside, I think it turned out just fine. The bottle wasn’t necessarily hard, in fact it was very straightforward. it’s just it’s a lot of make the same piece 30 times and put it in 30 different spots. All and all, it was a pretty fun build.

P.S. I don’t have a decent setup for taking pictures (yet). So these pics from my iPhone will have to do.

  1. Nicely done! Looks great, It almost looks like it could be sitting on teakwood planking.

  2. Looks great! Well done with the PE. It certainly looks the part, thanks for sharing! I wish Trumpeter had made their 1:700 kit full hull... Had they I'd have one in my stash.. I really like these battlewagons. Also, I like how you posed the crane with the Kingfisher.

    Remember, nobody here will criticize your time to completion, it's meant to be something you enjoy, at your own pace. 🙂
    Also, take the pictures as you please. All my pics posted on this site this far are from my LG.. and using natural sunlight was sure helpful.

  3. Nice job Brayden @Bray_Bray03. Having crawled all over that ship a few times in my youth, looks like the real thing.

    Well done!

  4. Great job, Brayden! I am no ship guy, but I love your work.
    All the best!

  5. @Bray_Bray03, Very nice indeed! 😃 I've been aboard the Texas 3 times and really love the old girl. Your model has done her right! 👍
