Product Description
Catalog of over 2000 scale models and nameplates (click here).

Scale: 1/96    (1/8 inch = 1 foot)

Recommended for:
 
This "Best Detail" version is designed for the finest detail, smoothest surfaces and very thin splinter shielding using the best material possible.  A "Best Cost" design is available separately (click here).

This model represents the fighting tops of battleship USS Tennessee BB-43 as they appeared during 1942, following its post-Pearl Harbor refit.  Their overall dimensions match drawings made by Alan B. Chesley.  Details were confirmed by careful examination of available photographs of the actual ship taken in 1942.

These fighting tops are specific to USS Tennessee.  Other fighting tops for similar US Navy battleships are different.

Notice: this model is designed for Best Detail using "Fine Detail" acrylic plastic, the best material available producing exceptional detail and smooth surfaces.  "Fine Detail" acrylic plastic is a good choice for static display models.  "Fine Detail" acrylic plastic is comparatively brittle.  Therefore, it is not recommended for Radio Control models.  Compared to "White Natural Versatile Plastic", a kind of nylon available separately, "Fine Detail" acrylic plastic produces sharper edges, details that are more defined, and the surface is much smoother with this product.  "Fine Detail" acrylic plastic is sandable,  cuts easily, and is compatible with more kinds of paint.
