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.
