NIce to see this hobby caught on enough to have a real cannon supplier, those used to be the biggest problem. Amazing instructable, to time consuming for my short attention span(LOL) but this is really amazing.
I built Trumpeters USS North Carolina in 2008 and she was my first big battleship in 1:350. The build started with my strengthening the hull, using plastic from the base plate intended for the waterline option of the model.
Only a ship that lies still or moves very slowly, has the surface of the water running perfectly level along the construction waterline of the ship. Apart from that, it’s much more work to conceal a waterline joint, than it is to cut a hull along the waterline, for those who wish to build such a model. In this case, joining the upper and lower hulls together meant cutting the reinforcements of the upper hull in order to make the halves fit. Apart from those two major flaws the kit is sound enough, and the build went fairly smoothly.
Anyone who wishes to avoid that kind of work, should build US or japanese ships the way they looked 1942 or -43, before they were overloaded with light AA guns.


I scratchbuilt the masts as usual, metal masts looking better and being stronger than plastic ones.
As for the paintjob, this model was built when I was in the beginning of my learning process of how to work with thin half transparent layers of different tones of the main colours.
At this time I didn’t have a good camera, so my friend Lars Befring photographed the finished model. It’s really amazing, that there are so many battleships being kept as museum ships in the US. Like Rick, I too have been fortunate enough to take the tour of the USS North Carolina and highly recommend it to anyone visiting Wilmington. On smaller ships the problem is manageable, simply because of the size of the parts i think. Luckily Trumpeters newer ship models have their hulls divided along their keel lines, and they provide bulkheads for stiffening the hull.
Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. Its a good marketing trick, allowing manufacturers to say that the kit can be build as either a full hull or a waterline model. Then I strengthened the insides of the hull sides with pieces of scrap plastic, so that they would not flex when sanding the joint.
Although I’m thankful that Trumpeter keeps putting out all these interesting ship models, they never had a modellers approach to kit construction. I started by painting the deck in a wood colour and then painted the less used parts of the deck blue. Fifty 20mm Oerlikons were detailed with barrels from 0,2mm guitar string plus four PE parts. I hadn’t yet come up with the method of painting underwater hulls, that I first tried out fully on the Yahagi. I was aboard the USS Massachusets and the USS New Jersey, but never got to the USS North Carolina. Then I press and rub the parts together, so that molten plastic gets pressed out of the joint. Completly flawless and perfect and i agree with you about the full hull options, A very long time runner on my bench is Hood, it was a royal pain to get this seam running along the hull to fill.


Go for your HMS Hood, finish her, post an article about her and then take her to shows and competitions! However other shortcomings related to the difficulty of working with clear parts got the better of me, so I decided to omit the floatplanes.
If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. They have bilge pumps to simulate damage control, are electric powered, and are armed with low-pressure CO2 cannons, that can rotate and depress. Depending on you ship's size and the level of detail you put into it, this could take quite a bit of time where you can save up for the money sinks. In reality it means hours of work for those who build full hull models and a poor alternative for waterline model builders.
I sprayed a bleached version of Deck Blue over it and then carefully wore some of the blue paint away with fine steel wool, where the deck was likely to have been most worn. That makes sense, since it could make the masking of the canopy easier, only they have divided the fuselage along the spine, so that you get a joint straight through the canopy!
It wasn’t of course, which became evident after priming the hull and more filling and sanding was required. I am proud though, that I through careful sanding and rescribing, managed to conceal them quite well. I visited her again in the 1990’s and was amazed at how much more of the ship was open to the public.
Oh well, at least I got to crawl all over the USS Missouri when I was a kid and she was kept at Bremerton Naval Shipyard.
The only damage is to the balsa wood on the hull, since the internal components are protected by shielding, and the electronic equipment is usually waterproofed.
