Spotlight Review

"BB-35 Build"
I have built 4 of these models, for myself and 3 siblings. An extremely detailed model that should be tackled by only experienced builders. Very satisfying after completion. My Dad served on the Texas in WWII. Also constructed acrylic covers myself. Difficult but a lasting memory.

"No joke, but worth it"
This kit is no joke. It’s not very big, but every square millimeter is bristling with armament making some steps a grind. In the end, you’ll have built yourself an awesome piece of American history, representing a time when men where men and diplomacy was negotiated at the end of a barrel. My only gripe with this kit is that the hull seam lines are a little thick, I ended up sanding mine down.

"A Best, and Only, Model of the USS Texas"
This is an excellent model. It is very highly detailed model (consisting of over 800 parts, even with the relatively simple deck features and structures of the actual USS Texas). This is quantified even more by the relatively fresh plastic molds, leaving very little flash or excess plastic. However, the feature that truly raises this model over other, similar models is the inclusion of a full set of photo-etch parts. This includes gun shields, full railings and stairs, superstructure details (such as radar and the superstructure arms), and other details; compared with other models which only including limited photo-etch details. I would recommend this model to any experienced models who want a nice challenge that works up into a highly detailed model. I wouldn't recommend this model as anybodies first project, however. I recommend you build up your modeling skills on less advanced models first.

"Long and Exhausting Build"
This model is definitely not for the impatient or beginner modeler. I would however recommend it to anyone with experience. The details,especially with the PE parts are superb. The hull is a two piece hull which needs putty and sanding to make a seamless hull. The parts on the sprue are held by thick plastic and requires much touch up after separating from sprue. This is my first real go at PE parts and they were nothing but tedious. Pictures to follow upon completion. Also can not wait for Tamiya to make this kit.


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