Nice job, you should send some to get posted on the "What's New" section of the home page of this site.

Interesting....despite this being a museum-quality, truly awesome model, it looks like it has the same problem as my 1/350 ship:

Can the #2 turret rotate 90 degrees without the rangefinder hitting the conning tower?

Beautiful work! The South Dakota class - IMO - were the best looking USN battleships. You've done Big Mamie proud!

Again,
Thank you all for your gracious comments.
I'm currently working on the Arizona in the 1/192 scale also. It really is quite the comparison to the Missouri and Alaska that I have done, but not so much the Big Mamie, at least in size.
