Here's the finished subject. The only thing lacking are the pulleys and hand wheels for the starboard boat crane, and those are on their way from YS. I'm really pleased with this one. If you ever had a hankering to do a resin ship, you really can't go wrong with YS Masterpieces line. My next build of theirs is going to be the USS Brooklyn Cruiser, also in 350th, but that will be a project for next fall. My to-do list now comprises of finishing up the Devastator, then tearing down my modeling area and redoing the basement into my Mancave where my bench will be rebuilt and the room finished off. Being the only male in the house, (even the dog and cat are female) I need a place to escape the estrogen fog that permeates the house.

I'm going to let the pictures do all the talking.

Thanks for following along for the ride.

Outstanding build! Glad to see you've been completely consumed by the dark side! Look forward to more ships from you.

Extremely nice work! I don't think I've seen Oregon in this all-white paint scheme before - was it painted like this for the "Great White Fleet"?

Very nicely done. Only one quibble: You have the bow wrong, specifically the top of the bow. The bit above the insignia and around the anchor chains at the bow should be solid and not railing. https://www.history.navy.mil/content/hi ... regon.html. That one quibble aside, this is a gorgeous model, and it's been incredibly helpful with figuring details out for a scratch built popsicle stick version I've been working on. Thanks for posting it!

I was about to comment on the strange way the bow anchor-chains are led, but checked against photographs and it is correct. These 'hawse-holes' must have been massive castings bolted down to the structure of the ship to take up sideway strains, when the ship was at anchor.
