Not much talk that I can find of these ships.... but being in Georgia, one of the first ships I started for my entire collection of 1/700 USN Battleships was the Georgia.... I have come back around to it and want to try to finish it because I am running out of space on my work bench to start new projects (which is what I do best haha!)

Has anybody else built any of Combrig's 1/700 Virginia class kits or is anybody working on them?

If any fans of this class can get to Nauticus in Norfolk, VA then I urge you to do so. They have the builders model of BB-13 made by Newport News SB circa 1909 or so. Its made of wood and brass, insanely detailed and about 10 feet long or so. Of the multiple plaques around it none note a scale however and its inside a glass case so its hard to measure. Her original bell is also hanging up nearby but needs some polish BIG time! Not sure if its on the list or they want to keep it "original".

I have some photos of it already and intend to take more this week.

I Just looked that up - I notice the 6" tertiaries are just plastic sticks in the side - I have USS Oregon BB3 with the same issue, I also have a really old Revell 1:426 scale USS Arizona - I Took 4 of her 5"/51 sponsons off (with internal pedestal) and plan to cut out the sponsons ports, mount a box on the inside of each with the pedestal and sponsons from the Arizona and make the 6" pivot. (they should look the right size)

Hey guys, Fine Waterline just posted a series of my photos of the builder's model of BB-13. She resides in the Hampton Roads Naval Museum on the 2nd floor of Nauticus in Norfolk, VA. You know the big maritime Center where BB-64 is berthed :thumbs_up_1: Should provide a nice bit of reference.

http://www.finewaterline.com/pages/albums/virginia/uss_virginia_bb13.html

The model was built by the Washington Navy Yard in 1901 of pine wood and brass. If anyone needs anymore shots just let me know.

Do we have any full hull drawings / plans (cross section also) of BB13 Virginia or its class?

Need those plans to build it full hull.

:wave_1: thanks!

That link has some info, but if this is the best one there is I guess I got a ton of work to do reconsiling those few 7-8 frames into bow and stern sections using I guess sculpting methods to some degree. . :heh: Stuff like this makes me wanna learn basic 3D printing so I could order the "ribs" to be printed in correct sizing. :)

I don't know of anyone that has the actual lines plan for the hull unfortunately....

But a hull can be built with deck plans and profiles using the bread and butter technique.... More work I know....

If there's a will there's a way....

pascalemod, might not be that hard if all decks are shown in the "inside profile" as can use the inside profile & the width of each deck from the topview of the decks to get the measurements of the frames you want. I've done that about a dozen times for my 1/144 ships & some smaller scale ships.

Taubman's online has plans:

http://taubmansonline.com/MSCVIRGINIASPANAMER.htm
It is listed as including both inboard and outboard profiles.

If you need plans of a US ship, and some other countries, that's your place.

For anyone wondering why that link wont work, all you gotta do is quote it or something, then the full quote will reveal a link that you can get to. Its a dropbox (EDIT: Forum) thing or smth.

It's the closing bracket in the link - the forum doesn't know it's part of the link and so cuts it off at that point.

Here's the fixed link (in situations like this, using the URL tag lets the forum know to include everything): https://www.dropbox.com/sh/4cn7x3t0pgpm7tu/AACp1ycuDs3NcgkODeVGBjKla/BB13%20USS%20Virginia%201906%20(Class%20Leader)?dl=0&subfolder_nav_tracking=1
