Scale: although Revell box art and literature state the Revell USS Arizona and USS Pennsylvania model kits to be 1/426 scale, when compared to official US Navy plans, they are actually 1/429 scale as confirmed by Loren Perry, owner of Gold Medal Models and holder of the original Revell documents. This 3D-printed model is perfectly scaled to match the Revell kits' true scale.  


Includes 1 fighting top, the "Fore Top".  The "Main Top", located aft, is available separately, and has different rivet and reinforcing plate detail. 

An early "Fore Top", without radar platform is also available.


Recommended for:

  • Revell 1/426 scale USS Arizona BB-39
  • Revell 1/426 scale USS Pennsylvania BB-38
  • Revell 1/426 scale Pearl Harbor Set USS Arizona, Mitsubishi A6M5 Zero, Nakajima B5N2 Kate


This model represents the forward fighting top, the "Fore Top", of USS Arizona BB-39, USS Pennsylvania BB-38, USS Nevada BB-36 and USS Oklahoma BB-37 as the ships appeared on December 7th, 1941, following the addition of a radar platform.  Due to the extremely large size of the CAD file for a complete fighting top, the Main Top, located aft, is offered separately.


Features:

  • overall dimensions and features scaled from official US Navy drawings and drawings by the late Alan B. Chesley, modified to match high resolution photographs obtained from the National Archives of USS Pennyslvania at Mare Island taken shortly after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor
  • accurate shape
  • accurately numbered, sized and located rivets of various sizes
  • accurate exterior reinforcing plates and straps
  • accurately shaped, sized and located rooftop access hatches with hinge detail
