Chuck Bauer, a member on this site besides others suggested I should start a thread here as he saw some of my work on another site.
Right now I'm in the process in kitbashing the Arizona into the US Navy's OBB's of WW2.

I saw this posted somewhere else that I don't recall. Glad to see here it in an easy access format. This is going to be neat to see as you use that old "Chestnut" of a kit to kitbash these others. Who would have thought?

Hi David,
The photos posted well and are very revealing.
This should be fun to watch as it unfolds.
I'm guessing a lot of people out there (including me) are very familiar with this kit and look forward to seeing all the permutations.

Dumb question, though. I know what "BB's" are but what are "OBB's"?

old battleships compared to the new fast battleships of ww2. theoretically it should be possible to do what I am doing in the larger & smaller scales.

That is fantastic, huge respect to you sir for undertaking such big modifications on kits. I will be watching the buildup of this collection unfold!

started kitbashing a Revell 1/429 Arizona into the Arkansas this past weekend by gluing the 2 hull halves together then cut a 3.3cm section out of the middle & gluing the forward & back halves back together. will use my bench belt sander to slope the main deck like I did on the Texas model.
