This is a conversion from the old Glenco USS OREGON 1/240 scale.
So far I've recreated the crains, gun deck shields, filled in the openings for electric motor.
I will post more pictures this weekend.
Note the hull bottom by the rudder, an opening was made there I think to accommodate an electric motor and propeller. I filled that with bondo. The wooden deck will need to be modified for the aft superstructure where the decks are rounded off.
PE from GMM, guns from B&D barrels and wooden deck from Scaledeck.
