Re: The original issue of Revell's John Paul Jones....
plus the keel sticking out of the bottom of the hull like their DE Buckley.
except for the ejector pin marks on the decks; the only thing missing were the sea-chest inlets in the hull...and yes the barbette angle on Mount 51 needs to be adjusted, but otherwise....
Lindberg got somewhat close, no cigar.
Revell's 1/426 (?) Arizona is accurate but for the "pill box" 5" casemate guns. The Yorktown isn't bad. The 1/72 PT 109 isn't too bad.
I'd give the award to Tamiya for coming out with the 1/350 battleships some years past.
