"Not for beginners."
Shane S. (Dallas, Tx)
I just finished putting one of these together. Some say this is a good kit for beginners but I don't completely agree with that. The reasons are that, this being a late 50's revision, the molds have seen a LOT of use and as such I encountered problems with my kit. Several sprues looked to have had mold halves that had slipped 1-2mm causing the halvs of individual pieces to be offset. On some parts this did not cause an issue but on others it took quite a bit of trimming, filling, and reshaping to make the part look and fit right. this was especially true of the anchor chain reels. This kit also suffers from some old assembly methodology which REALLY stands out when you go to put the superstructure together. You'll note that the pieces meet halfway up the bulkheads leaving with a bunch of oddly misshaped windows and nasty seam lines that need attention. And beyond that the quality of the details in the molded pieces is average at best. Coupled those issues with the fact that the hull halves didn't fit together correctly and had to be braced, clamped, and then filled and smoothed and I believe this to be a kit for the intermediate or better modeler. Now with all that being said I did find this to be a fun kit to build. And once it's done a fairly good representation of the ship overall. But I did spend most of my time fixing problems. But the kit was cheap so it's really just a practace of getting what you pay for. you could buy two of these kits for what the next least expensive kit costs. And that one is probably 1/700 scale. And anything in 1/350 scale will set you back anywhere from $50+ depending on manufacturer. So would I personally buy this kit again? For $15, ABSOLUTELY! But I wouldn't buy it for a young modeler or somebody just starting. Wait till they have a few kits under their belt before handing them one of these. In the right hands this can be a really nice build with a dirt cheap buy-in.

"USS Arizona Review"
TJet500 (New Jersey)
As per many of the reviews, many of us were weaned on this kit. I have always been satisfied with the traditional Revell kits. Good functionality (moveable guns, cranes, etc.), how you paint the kit provides the satisfaction. I built this kit as a novice, and many years later revisited it and upgraded the painting of the kit with the result of a very satisfying model. Everyone should add this kit to their repertoire. And, given the opportunity, visit the memorial at Pearl Harbor.

 
"Great Large Scale Kit for Easy Detail"
Sauceman (Asheville, NC)
I bought this kit at a local hobby store in North Carolina as a vintage box, and Hobbylinc sells it for half the price. I now shop at Hobbylinc for all my scale models. This model has few parts for an easy build phase, but the mold is old and you'll need a few clothespins, a good blade, and some decent tape. FYI, make sure to remove all the tape residue before painting the model. There is great detail in this, and with a few home-made washes, and a flat varnish, you'll be able to recreate a nice scale model to show your friends.

 
"1935 arizona"
woofdogmeow
the kit was one of my 1st and to my surprise came out great the turrets and casemate guns worked and she floated what more could a bath tube captain ask for. This kit has only to hassles the hull is a two piece it will require rubber bands to give it a good seal along the seam. after that puddy and paint seal any left over gaps. the other hassle the ship is in its 1935 condition NOT the 1941 condition you will note the missing heavy duty lattice work signal yards on the front tripod. That said the finished product is very nice and gives the kid confidence to move on to bigger challenges.

Comments

  • Keep away from small children, as parts may cause choking in infants.
  • For ages 10 and up.
  • Revell-Monogram has three skill level models, 1 being the easiest, 3 being the most challenging.
  • The USS Arizona is a memorial to the tradgedy at Pearl Harbor.
