First among the Old BBs to be built with raked, clipper bows, as well as chiseled, angular 14-inch gun turrets, BB-40 New Mexico, BB-42 Idaho and BB-41 Mississippi were also the first to be refitted completely without cage masts - all (just) before the start of WWII - and altogether represent a significant departure from Arizona. Nevertheless, their hulls (aft of the bows) still retained many similarities, and they are most definitely possibilities for conversion from the Revell 1/426 Arizona mold.
This will be the thread for these - and all things related to any of these three ships.
