"Excellent model"
j.shields28
For the price, you get an excellent model. This model takes tedious amounts of work and has many small pieces, over 130 pieces together. If you're new to modeling ships, I might recommend trying out Revell's USS Missouri model first, it has around 70 pieces. This Arizona model is a great build. The only issue I had with it is the rigging. The directions are very clear up until the last page on how to do the rigging, other than that, good product.

"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.

 
"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.

 
"Awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Ken W (New Market, TN)
I am currently working on this ship. it is good in size and I love the stands that comes with it. I also love the amount of detail that is on this ship. I will be posting pictures as I am done. the ship is already molded in a light grey but of coarse I like to go all out so I air brushed it a gunship grey and could have gotten by with just a normal grey or like a ghost grey. hey make it you own if you want to and just put your touch on it. I would very much recommend this to anyone. even if you are a beginner with painting and glue and such you will still be able to do this with ease directions are very well shown and paint schemes as well if you want to follow and make it look like it did in real life. RIP to all the soldiers that fought on this ship and sunk with its glory in Dec 7th 1941 the historical Attack on Pearl Harbor.
