Hi Everyone, Here is another 2015 build : Revell 1:535 Iowa class battleship USS Missouri BB-63. Ever since I saw the film Under Siege, I have always wanted a model of the USS Missouri, but not in the refitted condition from the film, so I was very pleased to see a kit in LSA models of the ship as she was built to avenge Pearl Harbor. Here is the kit. The one strange thing with this kit is that the kit has a rudder but no propellors and shafts included with it, or provision to put them in the hull. Cheers, Rick
rickbcolorado posted a topic in Work in Progress - MaritimeColleagues: I am starting a new WIP on the recently-released Trumpeter 1:200 BB63, Missouri. I am using the opportunity offered by the release of this model, the Pontos PE and Trumpeter aftermarket parts, to try to improve my modeling skills. I am not an expert in any sense, but I am an amateur in the best sense. I love modeling and am at a place in my day job, my income, and my blood pressure that I can relax a bit more and devote time to what has been a very long hobby. I Live in Colorado, work in IT networking in a global association, and am just impressed as all get-out by the quality builders, the civility, and the class of the people on this list. Their patience with me (I was posting photos of my WIP in the middle of someone else's WIP...what a newbie goober I am!) is impressive--people on the 'net today don't usually tolerate any mistakes. I have my hull built and am working out the armament builds with the Pontos PE, and i am going to Best Buy to pick up a better camera. I welcome all your feedback, and am looking forward to being corrected lots of times--I learn best that way. I will ask questions, share frustrations, and I know this will take a while....my deadline inside is a few months, but I know I would like it ready for seasonal competitions/displays in the summer of 2015. Best regards, Rick Bauer
