Everyone: A quick note. This thread began under the 1/200 Scale Group Build 2015-2017; so all my build before this point can be found there. Mr. Quinn was kind to transfer my last stage of my model to the WiP header since the previous thread was dead..Randy 9/18....

Ok all, time for an update! Summer hit me like everyone else as well as work, but here's my progress to date. The following shots show my model mounted in the sea base. Prior to this I had to wrap up any details I needed to add on the center of the ship since I would be reach way over the water base after mounting. I added railing to the second level(O2) and finished up various other things. I also began work on the scout aircraft and all is left is some decals and final painting. The Arizona during the 12/41 time frame had only two aircraft(OS2U-3), having three(OS2U-1) in May 41 according to William Larkins' book Battleship and Cruiser Aircraft of the United States Navy 1910-1949. The sea base is not finished and is still a bit too fuzzy on the port side. The ship is depicted in a turn to port which will be recovering an aircraft approaching a sled. What remains is final touches on the crane/catapults, decaling & painting the aircraft, installing the main deck railing, running the antenna rigging, and installing the finished boat cranes(they would be in the way of the rigging phase)..

HI Randy:

Kingfishers look pretty darned nice. The framing is crisp and clean. I think the water looks good, maybe a little too much foam, but you mentioned you weren't done, otherwise I think you are on the right path to depict it recovering the Kingfisher.
Looking forward to the next update.

Thanks Mark! Yeah the sea foam on the port side along the ship's edge was just laid down prior to the photos. When I was about to leave out of town, it was clearing up where the lighter minty green was showing through. The fiber though wasn't laying down the way I wanted it..hard to catch when you are putting it in.. Thanks for the aircraft remarks. It was more time than expected carving the inside out of the airplanes. Looking forward to getting back and progressing more on her, ready to turn out the lights on this one! For my Hood project I won't be putting more into other than what the Pontos has-it's pretty thorough! The scale for my scratch build is still undetermined...Randy

Okat all! I finally have gotten a chance to return to the bench and complete my Arizona. Life happens and we get changes in plans! Currently the 'Zona waits for a crew. She is depicted at sea during around December 1-5, 1941 during her last traing sortie before returning to PH, recovering her scout plane. Where I left off was I had to start the antenna rigging. That completed I installed the boat cranes and aircraft crane on the stern. Remaining work is the crew paint/install, permanently attaching the aircraft and sled, rigging the sled with tow lines, installing what I call the TV antenna on the mainmast, the admiral's flag, and then touch-up. I just took some random pictures of the model. I had to do it indoors as the weather was a bit random.
