    Greetings Guys, and Gals;

    I will be using two model Kits in 1/200 scale The USS Arizona, and the USS Missouri, I need the parts .................... :cry:

    I really hate to part out a nice model, but, for the lack of parts I have no choice ... please for-give me.

    I agree with Paul. Although our site is aviation related , a such build is always interesting and welcome. :thumbright:

    Totally agree with the lads! USS Pennsylvania BB-38 is one of my favourite battleships, next to USS West Virginia BB-48...

    I don't see a problem 'cross kitting' to make a required model. In the past, I've used three kits to produce one model.
    Bye the way, what does 'BB' mean - Big [email protected], Big B*gg*r, Battle Basher ???

    Big Battleship? Come on, it's American, it can't be that easy!!!
    Oh, and I once used a clock mainspring and a box of matches to make a detailed scale model of the Starship Enterprise. It lookd like a box of matches with a spring up its Rs ...........

    I have always favored the "Big [email protected]" designation.
    I have been building a model of the U.S.S. Oregon, (BB3) for many years now, and I have to say, that Big Beautiful [email protected] would be quite right.

    Personally, I think the pre-war Pennsylvania class (basket-masts) were the best looking of them all!!!

    I was on the bridge of the 'Jersey with my Uncle Bill when I was a kid, and I can honestly tell you that the BB designation should actually be BMF

    Greetings Guys, and Gals;

    I just talked to my brother, ((Bob) aka Robert) He said it was hump day, (Wednesday), when I was a younger person
    I use to look forward to this day........... "O" well, and life goes on. Unlike the other siblings in the family I was born
    in Ca, Bakersfield. But if you ask me I will deny it. As the story goes my dad found me in a hollow log eating worms,
    I recon that makes me a tree Nif, "O" well, like I said before............ life goes on............... :lol:

    Everbody have a good day, and Thank You for the Support ................ [​IMG]
