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 Cost using the more economical "White Natural Versatile Plastic", a kind of nylon. This material is waterproof and durable, a very good choice for Radio Control models where durability is important. When compared to "Fine Detail" acrylic plastic, available separately, sharp edges appear less defined and more rounded when printed. Being nylon, "White Natural Versatile Plastic" is generally not sandable and fewer types of paint will adhere to it. Care is recommended in choosing a paint that will adhere to, and fully cure upon, nylon. Google "paint for nylon" and "primer for nylon" to find several good choices.
Customers report that "White Natural Versatile Plastic", when compared to "Fine Detail" acrylic plastic, will have noticeable striations (print lines). To help smooth "White Natural Versatile Plastic" surfaces, apply thin layers of primer meant specifically for nylon. Allow the primer to harden. Then smooth the hardened primer.
