Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/96   (1/8 inch = 1 foot)

Recommended to build USS West Virginia BB-48 from:
 
This "Best Detail" version is designed for the finest detail, smoothest surfaces and very thin splinter shielding using the best material possible.

This model represents the fighting tops of the Colorado class battleship USS West Virginia BB-48 as they appeared at Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941.  They feature open viewports all around.  Their overall dimensions are based on official 1933 US Navy Booklet of General Plans drawings of the ship adjusted to match 1941 - 1942-era photos.  

The lowest level of each fighting top is offered as a separate part to allow the modeler interior access.  A locator strip exists within the fighting top to aid in assembly.  When properly assembled, the lowest level will be positioned 1.3mm higher than the bottom of the fighting top, accurately creating a small skirt around the bottom.

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.
