next build is 1/700 Uss Sigourney DD-643 converted from a Tamiya 1/700 Uss Cushing. Using Tom's Modelworks Photo Etch set. Havent started painting yet, currently still assembling and detailing the model. Will have to be a few alterations like the 40mm next to the forward bridge were actually 20mm singles on the Sigourney.

They're both coming along nicely.

So you plan to later hand-paint the Sodak's AA guns after spraying the hull and superstructure?

I thought the AA guns were pretty much Navy Blue as well? Per MS21 camo requirements.

Last build which is waiting for the others to be finished is IHP 1/700 Uss Montana kitbashed with a tamiya Uss Missouri. Uss Wisconsin in the back for size and layout comparisons.

going to be in the MS 22 like the Wisconsin and other late war warships

yeah, once I finish adding the 20mm I will be painting them the 5-N per required by ms 21. I just work in stages: I add all the AA suites before I go and paint them.
