Recommended to help build USS Pennsylvania BB-38 from:
This model is intended to help the modeler convert any 1/700 scale USS Arizona BB-39 model kit to sistership USS Pennsylvania BB-38. This model represents the booms and machinery platforms. USS Pennsylvania's cranes were significantly different than USS Arizona's cranes. When combined with the king posts, available separately (click here), the booms complete the ship's large boat/aircraft cranes.
Unlike the port and starboard crane kingposts and turntables, which were mirrored left- and right-handed, the booms for the cranes were identical.
Due to the extremely large size of the CAD file for the whole crane, the kingposts are being offered separately in order to meet Shapeways' file size requirement.
