Product Description
Catalog (click here)

Scale: although Revell box art and literature state the Revell USS Arizona and USS Pennsylvania model kits to be 1/426 scale, they are actually 1/429 scale as confirmed by Loren Perry, owner of Gold Medal Models and holder of the original Revell documents.  This 3D-printed model is perfectly scaled to match the Revell kits' true scale.

Contains 1 fighting top, the "Fore Top".  The "Main Top", located aft and available separately (click here), has different rivet and reinforcing plate detail.

Recommended for: 
This model represents the forward fighting top, the "Fore Top", of USS Arizona BB-39, USS Pennsylvania BB-38, USS Nevada BB-36 and USS Oklahoma BB-37 as the ships appeared at Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941.  Due to the extremely large size of the CAD file for a complete fighting top, the Main Top, located aft, is offered separately.

Features:
  • overall dimensions and features scaled from official US Navy drawings and drawings by the late Alan B. Chesley, modified to match high resolution photographs obtained from the National Archives of USS Pennyslvania at Mare Island taken shortly after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor
  • accurate shape
  • accurately numbered, sized and located rivets of various sizes
  • accurate exterior reinforcing plates and straps
  • accurately shaped, sized and located rooftop access hatches with hinge detail
