I’ve finished my USS North Carolina (BB-55) model, purchased this probably three years ago and have been working on it since March. The scale is 1:700. I shared this over on my history account, @haze_grey_history , but for shiggles I figured I’d post here too, with some extra photos showing more details. Amber and I conspired to built our own shelves for our apartment, some industrial-deco type stuff, and this model will sit on one of those right next to a piece of the real battleship’s deck. I made the stand out of teak as well, the same wood as the deck, and in the process retro-fitted my other ships to matching stands. Battleship North Carolina down in Wilmington, NC really is the coolest thing to explore in the South, if you ever get a chance to go see her.
