USS Tennessee & USS California Ship Models

CaliforniaLatefwd03.jpg (75492 bytes)

Jim Kloek's USS California, 1944, nicely complements his 1941
version built earlier and  Jim built the model straight from
the box using the Iron Shipwright 1:350th USS  Tennessee/California kit. The most
time consuming aspect of the buildup was the painting of the dazzle scheme. He used
the pattern from Floating Drydock, laboriously masking and spraying the whole thing.
The two models look great next to each other, and Jim says they are a real
conversation piece. 

You can build either the USS Tennessee or the USS California.
