This model kit superstructure is intended to help modelers build USS Arizona's sistership USS Pennsylvania BB-38 as the ship appeared at Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941Pennsylvania survived the attack, providing valuable service during the rest of World War Two.   Configured as fleet flagship, Pennsylvania's superstructure was distinctly differently shaped than that of Arizona.  This model kit accurately captures those differences.

This is a multi-part kit.  These parts were designed for a tight fit.  3D-printed plastic is more brittle than polystyrene kit parts.  If necessary, trim parts to fit rather than force them.
