"An interesting build"
polockman (Lagro, IN)
Overall, this is a fun kit to build. I had very little flash on the parts and found that both paint and glue adhered well to the plastic. The kit has a mixed amount of detail built into it - somethings you might like more details on and on other sub-assenblies there is maybe too much detail. Parts fit and engineering was good - with 2 exceptions...on both of the observation towers two of the tripod legs are miscut, so you'll have to wallow out the attachment holes in the towers in order to attach the legs properly. And when it comes to assembling these towers, I highly advise the use of cyanoacrylic glue to ease assembly - working with just model cement will be an exercise in futility I believe. Overall, I'm glad I bought this kit and enjoyed the build.

"good looking model."
I bought this model back in May. It is a nicely detailed set but a lot of flashing issues and seams needed work. I have been using the eduard upgrade kit on the Arizona which is making it even more detailed. I have bought a lot of models and this is by far the most detailed I have purchased.

Having a model cheap and big is good, but this model has something that makes it look really good. Decently big, parts look good, not flashing, and already painted hull.

"First kit review"
Fun build with some challenges. The two towers on the ship are a definite challenge due to the alignment of the pre drilled holes. The holes are off and thus provide some work to get the towers lined up correctly. The ships deck is also an issue with the seams showing when the deck pieces are joined. Luckily I purchased a wood deck for the kit and thus eliminated the issue.
