These are some
photos of the old Jim Shirley Productions of the what-if 1/700 scale arsenal
1) Four USC-42
2) Two SHF domes
3) a dome that is used for drone guidance. (aft of the helicopter landing area-the big one)
4) a dome for BMD(aft of the helicopter landing area- the smaller one)
5) an inmarsat antenna
6) AN/SPQ-9B (atop the mast)
7) a data link for SH-60s.
I also added SLQ-32. Note that space has been reserved for the addition of Nulka launchers.
One of the less
attractive parts in the kit is the mast. It is stealthy huge and looks
empty. I thought of how i d fill it with stuff. The solution is the PE-139 set
of Pitroad that i bought for the Bushmasters and the 20mm guns. The set also
contains the masts for an Arleigh Burke. I thought since the arsenal ship was a
mid 90s proposal it would be logical to have a similar mast with the Burkes. As
mentionned above AN/SPQ-9 and a datalink for the helo were added atop the mast.
PE-139 also provided the stack ventilators
Fore of the main gun a vertrep marking from the Pitroad USN generic decal sheet was added. Finally on the sides of the ship grilles provided in the GMM USN/JMSDF set were placed.
