Hmmm...if I had any interest whatsoever in late war US battleships, this would be a "must get"! Just wondering...does Very Fire have any association with Flyhawk, or is this all their own molding?

Moreover, I have seen heavy resemblance with Pontos, regarding their instructions for PE/resin sets in 1/350 (especially the page with part count).

This looks great and I can't wait to have mine arrive in my greedy hands. Now, you know as a random thought if you have the CAD files it might be straightforward to perhaps scale this kit up to 1/350. . . . I mean, doesn't Tamiya's new Yamato need a sister? :big_grin:

This is a nice kit. Anyone want to comment on the 5" 54 turrets that come with the kit? I am not sure I have seen drawings of these. I do not think the twin mounts were ever produced.

Thanks for joining the forum and showing us the details of your kit.

What are your plans for future releases in 1/700th scale?

It's pretty close to a doubled-up version of the single 5"/54 on the Midways, down to the hatch and grabrail positions - about as reasonable an extrapolation as any, I suppose.

We had this kit at our last club meeting. It's very nice and complete. It has everything you could need. Nice injection molding, wood deck, and photo etch. Nothing to add about the turrets except they looked nice in the box. :-)

Bill, did you pick up this kit?

I'd love to see the never built Lion class of the Royal Navy to go along with the Montana.

Dave,

I did purchase the kit. Finally getting in some modeling time. Look forward to actually making it to a Mile High Ship Modellers Club meeting. Also an Orange Hobby Midway, very nice kit as well.

Just received the two I'd ordered from Freetime... nice, very nice. Nice enough, I ordered two more. Doing the whole class, you see. (The fifth? I've had an IHP resin one in my stash for quite a while now; going to trick it out into a Desert Storm fit with parts from two Tamiya New Jerseys!)

I'd wager on a German H-39 before a Lion... but what I'd really like to see next in the never-completed lineup is a BB-49 South Dakota (likewise adding sisters to the IHP one I already have).

My kits are all in-hand now. I am really looking forward to building these! Thanks very much for inclusion of all the key photoetch parts in one package!

One issue that is bugging me, though: The molded-on 40mm tubs just ahead of turrets 1 and 4. They're just too close (especially the ones ahead of turret 1) They'd foul the traverse of the guns - the barrels would have to be elevated significantly to clear the 40mm gun directors. I might leave the aft ones as-is, but the forward ones... no, I just can't. Hypothetical though it is, the logic of it doesn't work for me. I'll shave them off, scribe-in the planking, and reposition them either further forward, or comfortably aft (say, flanking turret 2 at the front end of the 20mm gun banks) Maybe on one ship I'll use some spare parts and do both. They're all hypothetical, so it'd be fine to mix it up a bit. Convincingly scribing deck planking to blend in with the rest will be quite the challenge, though.

This is very interesting. This kit as shown on the Very Fire site, modelwarships.com review, and as purchased from Freetime does not include a wood deck like I posted earlier. However our club member bought this kit from HobbyEasy and their offering includes a wood peel and stick deck. Also I can't find a wood deck offered independently by other manufacturers (yet). So at this point if you want a wood deck for this model HobbyEasy may be the way to go.

I noticed on ebay when Montana first appeared that the seller said only the first run of a limited number would contain the wooden deck. If you ordered one of the first runs you would get the wood deck if not then you would not.

Mine does not have the wood deck. I'm quite able to simulate wood deck with paint though, so I'm not really thinking its a problem not to have it. Depending on camo scheme the deck might end up blue any way.
