This is my 1:350th scale BB-55 USS North Carolina, from the Trumpeter kit built for a customer. I used Tomís Modelworks photo-etch and painted the Showboat with Pollyscale acrylic paint. Overall, it was a very fun build, with a few minor nit-picks.
1.Joining the deck sections is always a challenge to get
right, and this was no exception. No secrets here, just Tenax R7 glue, Squadron
White Putty, sanding and rescribing the planking. 2. No shipís name for the
stern supplied in the decals. 3. Fit of the upper and lower hull halves is a bit
offÖitís like the upper half is SLIGHTLY larger than the bottom. My customer
requested the post-war gray scheme with light weathering. I prefer the wartime
dazzle and a lot of wear and tear, as it is more fun to do!
