Product Description
Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/96     (1/8 inch = 1 foot)

Recommended part to build USS Pennsylvania BB-38 from the Scale Shipyard 1/96 USS Arizona BB-39 hull (# WHU-B3).

Contains one crane boom.  Two crane booms will be needed for one ship model.  A set of two kingposts is available separately (click here).  

Crane booms, when combined with the king posts, are for the large boat/aircraft cranes.  Two crane booms will be required for one ship model.  

Unlike the port and starboard crane kingposts and turntables, which were mirrored left- and right-handed, the booms for the cranes were identical.  

USS Pennsylvania's cranes were significantly different than USS Arizona's.

Features:
  • accurately scaled from drawings by the late Alan B. Chesley
  • bolt, nuts and rivets all realistically designed and carefully located to precisely match high-resolution photos of the actual cranes taken at Mare Island in Februrary-March 1942
 
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.

​From Wikipedia: "USS Pennsylvania (BB-38) was the lead ship of the Pennsylvania class of a United States Navy super-dreadnought[7]battleship. She was the third Navy ship named for the state of Pennsylvania.

She was laid down on 27 October 1913, by the Newport News Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Company, Newport News, Virginia.[1] She was launched on 16 March 1915, sponsored by Elizabeth Kolb of Philadelphia, and commissioned on 12 June 1916, with Captain Henry B. Wilson in command....[1]

"At the time of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on 7 December 1941, Pennsylvania was in drydock in the Pearl Harbor Navy Yard. She was one of the first ships in the harbor to open fire as enemy dive and torpedo bombers roared out of the high overcast.[9] They did not succeed in repeated attempts to torpedo the caisson of the drydock, but Pennsylvania and the surrounding dock areas were severely strafed. The crew of one 5 inch (130 mm) gun mount was wiped out when a bomb struck the starboard side of her boat deck and exploded inside Casemate 9. Destroyers Cassin and Downes, just forward of Pennsylvania in the drydock, were seriously damaged by bomb hits. Pennsylvania was pockmarked by flying fragments. A part of a torpedo tube from Downes, about 1,000 lb (450 kg) in weight, was blown onto the forecastle of Pennsylvania. She had 15 men killed (including her executive officer), 14 missing in action, and 38 wounded.[9]

"On 20 December, Pennsylvania sailed for San Francisco, arriving on 29 December. She underwent repairs until 30 March 1942."
