"lindberg , what do you expect"
j w bolen (Ohio)
It is a typical Lindberg kit from yesteryear. Fit and detail problems as described in the first review. With a lot of work you can produce a decent ( not great) replica of the ship, or you can look at it as trip into the past. I built one recently as a rainy day project got rid of walls/ railings , filled gaps and painted it gray for WW I appearance. It still looks more toy than serious model. However, I had a skilled friend invest about 20 hours in one and he was able to produce a great looking model that was 2/3 Lindberg and 1/3 replacement parts and added details. recommended if you will settle for mediocre out of the box or as a starting point for some serious work

"olympia flaws"
the kit has many flaws the 1st is the main guns the turrets and guns come as one piece that then are glued to the barbette so no turning turrets. The observation platform that admiral dewey used doesn't fit right to the superstructure so you will have to settle for it just sort of being off center. the hull is in 2 pieces but the main deck when inserted in the hull will have large gaps especially in the bow and stern. The railing are molded on the kit and look like solid walls. the details on the hull are good for it's generation of casting but with lots of flash to remove on the parts. i tried to paint it in the peace time tan buff colors don't it comes out heinously ugly do it white or better still gray. The good thing about the kit is when finished it is rugged and when i was a kid i put ballast in mine and this ship was a regular bath tub warrior. you have to be old school to appreciate this kit.
