Should be an interesting build. Have to post updates when you start working on it. I ended up getting IHP 1/700 South Dakota kit before they stopped production on their resin line. Going to do a 'as is' build, depicting her as she would have looked as built.

going to build it as is but will use Colorado style turrets but set for triple barrels instead of the turret design she supposedly was to get.
