Thanks, the bends to straighten out the sides are visible. The corners get washed out through the casting process.

It won't show because the link Dropbox gives you takes you to the page that contains the image, rather than the image itself. To get the "true" link to the image that works with our [img] tags, you need to right click the image and "copy image link" and use the [img] tags with that, like so:

Guys, Hello from Russia! In our country too there are modelers. But we build models mostly out of wood with axes.... :smallsmile:

Hello, I have some questions

Were there big differences between Missouri and New Jersey from 1990?
How many searchlights 36 In had Missouri in 1945 and How many searchlights 24 In had Missouri in 1945.?
How many 12 In signaling lamps and target designator had in 1945?
It is worth buying this book, which includes:
USS Missouri (Bb-63): America's Last Battleship by David Doyle?

In 1945, the Missouri carried 5 36" search lights, 2 24" signal/search lights, 9 12" signal lights.

If by target designators, you means the pedestal mounted bearing transmitters with binoculars, then there were 8 of them.

A few:

By the 1990's there were number differences. The forward director tower on the New Jersey is completely different from those of the other ships. The NJ has "ears" while the others have a wrap around structure.

The Missouri has a mess for the main mast deck. It is solid on the other ships.

The forward support of the main mast ends at a support on the NJ. It extends down to the secondary conn level on the other ships.

The NJ and IA have different MK.38 directors from the other ships. The WI and MO have black backs (giving more room) while the NJ and IA have sloped backs.

The Missouri has MK.37 directors with commander cupolas. The NJ's directors lack these.

The forward turret on the MO has ventilators at the side. The NJ lacks these.

The NJ has lockers behind the bridge doors. The ships lack these.

The light lock in the open air tunnel behind the flag bridge (03 level) is different on all four ships.

The vents on top of the 20mm clipping room forward of turret 2 are different.

NJ has a large vent at the O1 level next to the FAS control platform. MO has a vent with a different shape.

The supports under the chaff platform are different both forward and under the side Mk.37 directors.

The two forward tomahawk launchers are slightly different on the NJ than from the MO.

The 04 extensions below the Phalanx launcher go all the way to the end of the deck on the MO but jut back in on the NJ>

If I recall, the MK-37 directors had their external shells replaced after WWII with a new style. Did the difference in commander's copula persist?

Iowa and Wisconsin have the new shell with the commanders copula
Missouri has her original director with the commanders copula
New Jersey still has her original modified director without the commanders copula

What were the dimensions of the portholes in the superstructure?

Here's a little information that conflicts with what is published.

The lower belt plates are 12.1" thick at the top (16"in length at the top). Then they taper to knuckles of 11.7" , 6.4", 2.3", and 1.62" thickness.

But that was the mill size of the plates. At the shipyard they were cut to length (so the bottom would be thicker than 1.62") and they were machined to create a taper to 1" at the bottom.

So the plates arrived at the shipyard 1.62" at the bottom but when they were installed they were 1" at the bottom.
