As currently I am working on main Superstructure I have a question regarding air pressure bottles placed on walls of Superstructure. What is the color of those as for December 1945, I see different solutions used by modellers. Additionally, in my Kagero book on Mo it looks like they are yellow and green. The only problem with Kagero plans which are perfect (!) is that colors are sometimes confusing... (3d photos)

Can anyone recommend?

Something wrong with these plans. Montana was 921 feet long while Missouri was 887 for a difference of only 34 feet. Those plans make Montana look at least 100 feet longer than Mo. There was only a difference of 12 ft in the width also but the Montana plans look a lot wider.
Are they the same scale?

Lloyd,

You are right, I have checked numbers and this is wrong... This is another example why we should be carefull with copy/paste info from Internet... Sorry for that.

I have deleted photos.

Lloyd, Thank You for alertness!

As I am still at my vacation leave abroad I haven't had a chance to put any work in the model but still I am getting information and fact on the ship.

There is still an unanswered question regarding air pressure bottles placed on walls of Superstructure. What is the color of those as for December 1945, I see different solutions used by modellers. Additionally, in my Kagero book on Mo it looks like they are yellow and green. The only problem with Kagero plans which are perfect (!) is that colors are sometimes confusing... (3d photos)

Please help! :smallsmile:

Coming back to my workshop I have finished the main piece of superstructure. I have placed a wooden deck with an additional use of Tesa glue. Normally I do this with CA glue but with this size it would be almost impossible... From now on I will add additional pieces separately, one by one being glued, painted and varnished.

I have also prepared hull which is also painted and varnished.

So, what do You think? :smallsmile:

Very nice! However, your inboard screws are reversed. Screws on the port side both turn in a CCW direction (top of screws turn away from the hull.)

Also, regarding the compressed gas bottles, There used to be a color chart located in the "Calling All Iowa Class Battleships", but it was a Photobucket image and no longer exists. The tall bottles are oxygen and the shorter ones are acetylene. Yeah, the kit only has oxygen bottles, but Model Monkey sells a 1:200 gas bottle set that has both oxygen and acetylene bottles.

Maybe some =one reading this made a screen copy of that color chart (I didn't, darn it!), and would be gracious enough to repost it.

Thank You Larry very much.

I thought I have done screws as the Trumpeter instruction says but apparently I was wrong... I will correct this for sure.

As for bottles in the set there are two sizes of bottles so I figure there are both, those with oxygen and gas. I have also posted a question in Iowa class thread. Thank You again for the advice!
