"Great Model of Pre-Pearl Harbor BB"
Ordered this one about 6 months ago, and finally got up the nerve to build it. I think the build came out pretty good, and I did do some different paint schemes on the ship as I used a darker wood color for the main deck and upper deck where wood is still shown; I painted the hull and the upper superstructure in Model Master's Navy Blue/Gray, the non-wood areas were painted in Model Master's Independent Blue including all the armaments. I also ordered and used a pre-molded cage mast from Blue Ridge/Freetime Hobbies instead of the photo etch that comes with the kit. I also painted the cage masts from stack level on both masts in a Flay Gull Gray and the lower portion of the main mast in the Navy Blue/gray. I found that the #1 turret fits awfully tight against #2 turret though. Some of the plans don't always give you the exact spot to place the boat cranes arms and the deck catapult requires one to remove the plastic catapult from the base and glue the photo etch part in its place. I could not cut the part off so left the part intact. I found the hull and deck fit together well with no seams to fill. After building the 1944 USS California, I was worried about the fit of deck to hull. All the painting was done by brush, no airbrushing at all.

"Excellent Model"
This is a great version of a Pearl Harbor Battleship prior to the attack. The detail is superb, fit and finish of parts is excellent. Not a beginners model. Some small hand tools are necessary if you want a finished product free of excess glue showing. The model was both a pleasure and a challenge to build, but worth the cost and effort to build. This is highly recommended by me.

"A challenging kit but well worth it"

This kit details the USS Maryland as she appeared at the time of the Pearl Harbor attack in 1941. It was almost as challenging to build as the USS West Virginia kit I built earlier, as I am still getting used to working with photo-etched parts. Having said that, I was not disappointed with it. It took a bit longer to build than other kits but the result was more than satisfying. This kit does have some very small parts such as capstans & winches which were challenging to place even with tweezers; however I did manage to get them into place. The birdcage masts were a little easier to assemble this time as I had learned from my experience with 'West Virginia'; it was still a bit challenging to get the forward conning tower to stay upright. Overall, a very good kit to build and I am glad Trumpeter is producing these old classic warships. I would like to see some kits of ships like the USS New Mexico, USS Indiana, USS Mississippi & USS Idaho.

"It's a rare fantastic model ship."
The Trumpeter model kit of the USS Maryland took me about 6 or 7 days to build it. Once It was completed, the model kit turned out nicely. I bought this item from the hobby store near Norfolk on a vacation trip. The guy that worked at the hobby store said that the model kit of the USS Maryland is a rare ship.


Due to small parts that could cause a choking hazard please kee away from children 3 years of age and younger.
