"almost perfect"
pamason (Entiat, WA)
This is a very good kit but it has many small parts and they fit well tweaser are a must. One of the hard parts is the cage mast. It is a phot-etich part and must be fited with care. The inst are good and the paint guide is good too. The ship can come as a full hull or waterline. This is a ship that will take time.

"How to solve the cage mast problem"
Although I have not built this one, I found when I built the USS Maryland as at Pearl Harbor, I bought pre-formed cage masts through Perfect, and they also have the correct shape and you don't have to paint them if don't want to.

"The First of the BIG 5"
I liked how this kit went together, I am glad the Trumpeter has taken on the task of releasing ship classes such as the Colorado class battleships and the New Orleans class cruisers that have not been produced in plastic before, Now if only they will produce the New Mexico Class Battleships - USS Idaho, USS Mississippi and USS New Mexico.
