Assembling the model of battleship was different, when it is easy, but when it is not – he is guilty. Tamiyu dock with Pontos is not always easy. Instruction in Pontos would like me more, faced with the fact that we had to cut the plastic when it was already very difficult, and it contains a number of errors in the numbering of parts.
Also added: dymopostanovschiki from Veteran (from Tamiya are very primitive), spotlights from Nord Star (from Tamiya are none at all), the helicopter Trumpeterovsky (from Tamiya palest hue, as stated in the Pontos range of – I do not put). Maybe even something on a trifle, as has already been forgotten.
Rigging of “razdernutogo” spandex. Windows and glazed windows Micro Rristal klear.
Painting: body – Tamiya of cylinders, but gray on the ship did not have (the paint from the second bottle when diluted by AER curled), had by long rebounds are mixed acrylic. Wash also Tamiya as was the paint TS (from bottles) should not have to use.
I want to thank everyone who helped me in the construction and further for a wonderful box for the model.
History of battleship – prototype model
USS New Jersey (BB-62; “Big J” or “Black Dragon”) is an Iowa-class battleship, and was the second ship of the United States Navy to be named in honor of the US state of New Jersey. New Jersey earned more battle stars for combat actions than the other three completed Iowa-class battleships, and was the only US battleship providing gunfire support during the Vietnam War.
During World War II, New Jersey shelled targets on Guam and Okinawa, and screened aircraft carriers conducting raids in the Marshall Islands. During the Korean War, she was involved in raids up and down the North Korean coast, after which she was decommissioned into the United States Navy reserve fleets, better known as the “mothball fleet”. She was briefly reactivated in 1968 and sent to Vietnam to support US troops before returning to the mothball fleet in 1969. Reactivated once more in the 1980s as part of the 600-ship Navy program, New Jersey was modernized to carry missiles and recommissioned for service. In 1983, she participated in US operations during the Lebanese Civil War.
New Jersey was decommissioned for the last time in 1991 (after serving a total of 21 years in the active fleet), having earned a Navy Unit Commendation for service in Vietnam and 19 battle and campaign stars for combat operations during World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Lebanese Civil War, and service in the Persian Gulf. After a brief retention in the mothball fleet, she was donated to the Home Port Alliance in Camden, New Jersey, and began her career as a museum ship 15 October 2001.
