Hello all and thanks for stopping by! My first entry into this Group Build will be Revell's 1/426 USS Arizona. The kit was first released in 1959 so it's quite seasoned . This release is more recent though but the parts are the same as her elder/original issue: I plan on just having some fun with this build, a walk down memory lane if you will. I built a few of Revell's and Monogram's ship kits back when I started out modeling and the bug to build some of these classic ship kits has bitten me badly recently! She will be straight OOB with the exception of rigging, a new base, and possibly aftermarket flags A quick start to clean up flash and nasty mold seams: Part of one of the two tripod masts...notice the seam: The two scout aircraft (it is ARC after all right...we must have some aircraft). Sink holes and flash abound: Nothing sanding sticks and a bit of Tamiya putty can't fix. The kit is showing her age. Flash and/or heavy mold seams everywhere. But I guess we all get a seam or two as we age huh...LOL! Anyway, tonight will be seam and flash cleanup with tomorrow being porthole opening/drilling and assembling the port and starboard hull halves. Thanks again for stopping by. Comments, suggestions, opinions etc are welcome throughout this build. Good luck to all GB participants! Regards.
