By Dave Becker
1/350 USS Pennsylvania BB-38 (Banner)
USS Pennsylvania BB-38 as she appeared in 1934. Ship is in peace time #5 Navy Gray.
Model is the Banner USS Arizona 1/350 plastic kit converted into the Pennsylvania. Some points of interest: Port side 5" casemate guns are open, bridge structure very different from Arizona, conning tower is larger and one deck higher, ships boat cranes are as the Pennsylvania had. 5"/51 cal guns forward on 01 level where later the 1.1' Quads were to go, all gun tubs are removed, decks reinscribed.
You can also see this ship in a late-war 1945 version..
