1200
USS Arizona

  • move
A while ago I built the 1/200 Arizona with the addition of the WEM etch set and some improvements on the hull. While it was beautiful as it was on pedestals, it was very difficult to ship around the world. So in order to sell it and sleep a bit easier while it was in transit I, decided to waterline the model and cast a set of mooring quays and place it at rest at Pearl Harbor, a familiar site. The figures are Trumpeter (white ) and the blue are from the Preiser series of civilians for architectural models in 1/200 scale .

What a magnificent display! 1/200 is becoming an exciting scale to work in and having more subjects to choose from in that size will make for some spectacular displays. --Karl

That is a very beautiful model. Knowing the Arizona's fate seems to add a measure of heaviness to the diorama.

Looks great! Fantastic modelling! The only error I see is the US Flag. It would not be flown from the mast while the ship is moored. It would be flown on the staff on the fantail (while a jack, which in 1941 would have been the blue field of the US flag with 48 stars) would be flown from the jack staff on the bow. Again, fantastic work on the Arizona, and a great historic display!

Outstanding, excellent display. The figures give a real sense of activity whilst bringing to life the sheer size of the Ship. Beautiful work. Al

A really magnificent build and interesting to see that Kostas went for a "dark measure" paint job. The typical Kostas touches like the launches running out mooring lines really bring it to life.
