Hadn't heard that Jaques was doing some, but I had heard that WEM was... nothing more.

Hi everyone,

Have any one of you heard or seen news of the Trumpeter 1/200 Arizona? I saw a mention of it in one of the magazines. If you have heard/seen it... any details? New tooling or copy of their copy of...

Thanks and have a great day!

Steven's doesn't give details, just box art, era, and price when available.

I might be responsible for spreading this rhumor here. I met Jaques at Scale Modelworld at Telford last November, and asked him specificly about any plans to produce these guns in 1/350. He confirmed that thay were going to do them but could not give a specific time frame.

White Ensign posted this on their website on 5/17/07:

WEM PRO 3520 1/350 USN 5"/51 Open Mount (x 10) have arrived. GBP 6.77 gets you a pack, which is enough to kit out a USS Arizona.

Here are some more of the photos I had taken of the model at the Arizona Memorial.

I have quite a few more and even a few of the sunken Arizona with the memorial over it. All the models are in cases so sometimes there are reflections or flashes on the glass but most of them turned out.
Let me know what you think and if you have a specific detail you wanted to see, let me know and I will check to see if I have it in a photo.
Thanks-
J Seeling

I thought the Arizona didn't have the machine guns instaled in the top gun tub. If she did wouldn't it have been the air cooled .50's?

Not necessarily; CV-2 Lexington's .50 cal.s on top of the stack were water cooled... what Trumpeter molded as a doorway on the small platform underneath each side was actually the reservoir.

Talked to Don for a bit today; he commented that J Seeling's photos were the pretty good for representing the color of the model accurately.. most everyone else has used too much flash. The aviation gas line on the model is "200% correct" in a sense.... the Chesley plans he used had it going down the port & starboard side but they determined later it was only on the port side... also the degaussing cables are missing from the model; they should be in the gutters at the deck edge but they just flat old ran out of time to get them built and in there.

Tracy,

Thanks for checking on that so quickly. My Arizona build is collecting dust for a bit, I'm building a S-100 right now, but I'm always looking for more info on the "Zona". The 1/426 kit that I have of her is kinda a test bed build fo a 1/350 build I want to make of her(more details and easier on old eyes).

Gentlemen (and ladies if present...)
I hit Turner's web site up every once and a while to see if they have the movie that featured Arizona, "Here Comes the Navy" on the schedule. This may be far-to-advanced news, but it is on the calendar now during the "James Cagney Film Festival" in August. August 7 (Thursday) at 3:30 PM is the date and time, and you can view a trailer for it here.

Well guys I was just told by my friend that my PE set for the Arzonia has just arrived. I will be stoping by his place Friday, and if you guys want I can give you a first inpression of this set.

As I noted earlier, I will be using this set as a suplement to the GMM set.

These two sets should keep me busy for at least a 9-12 months !!!!

Happyness is too much PE

Hi Guys,
Here is my 1/700 Dragon Arizona after getting some more paint; after being temporarily stalled. I liked 5-S, but I thought it too light.
I decided to stay with the Model Master Acryl Marine Colors 5-S, but I wanted it to be darker; just so I could get a closer feel for the pics I've seen of the ship when she wore 5-S. Darker seemed, "more right", to me. It's still 5-S out of the bottle, but with some black added to it.
See what you guys think.
Kind of in a shadow....somewhat indirect artificial light...........
Image

The turrets, superstructure, 5"25's and the funnel, were painted and re-painted respectively..............
Image

Here is the hull under direct artificial light........
Image

The two tripod masts required some extra effort to assemble. Odd, they seem simple enough..... :huh:

I have finished the aft tripod except for painting, but am replacing the legs of the forward tripod with brass tubing. Without making gaping guide bosses for the forward tripod legs, they would otherwise be bent and it was completely obvious....unacceptable.

At 'em!
Tony

Hi Guys,
Tracy,
Bingo!
Martin,
I'd love to see some progress pics.
How did you fare with the tripods?
I ordered a GMM BB set and some Clipper barrels yesterday. Rich Durham gave me some blast bags for the Clipper barrels. I may end up with an extra 12 blast bags, but I won't know till my PF package gets here. Oh, can you guys keep a secret? My Pacific Front package will also be including the HP 1/700 CVB-42 and CVB-43!
The Turrets are painted but not glued top to bottom. For some reason, I will wait till I have the blast bags and barrels in my hands before I close up the turrets without any barrels inside...first.
Tony

Tony, nice going on your model. I will be picking up the additional PS set tonight for my Arizinia 1/350, and I will be clearing the work bench to get her started this weekend. This is going to be a long build I fear!!



Keep posting the pics Tony

Tony,

Nice work as always. I gave the hull and superstructure parts another zap with the airbrush, I'll try and snap some pictures this weekend - but I'm not nearly as far along as you are. I've just been working on her in between breaks on the Illinois.
