These are photographs of my USS Oregon. It was built from drawings found in the Reilly & Scheina American Battleships, 1886-1923, book. The book (along with Alden's book) got me interested in the old steel navy. The model was part of a planned series on American predreadnoughts, but I never got past Kearsarge, which I found later I build in an incorrect gray color scheme. This model is 1:550 scale.
