Thank you Marcos for a most interesting look at your work. In case you were not aware of it, a few "pieces" of the Oregon survive to this day, and are on display in Portland, Oregon. They include the mast section, the funnels and a small section of the bow.

Hi Marcos,

This is one great building log.
Thank you for sharing your technique und knowledge.

One question crossed my mind that is:
Do you think it would be managable to replace the styrene decks with wood veneer?

Anyhow, brilliant work and I will keep watching.

Hey Marcos, not to put pressure on you, but I´m short on Oregon , any progress ?



Hi, Jan...

Sorry for my delay, but the Oregon project is part of a Group-Build in a site here in Brazil and I interrupt the building waiting for a colleague who was sick ....

On this week-end, I resume the work, posting here the new steps, to follow their colleagues ...

I hate to stop a kit ... We miss the point of things ...

Look below !!!

Dr. Who2, thanks for your words...

I´m sorry, but in my city and in the vicinity, I do not have access to this type of material ...
The only way to do this is by the "hard way" !!!!"

I finally resume the project of my Oregon ....

Holly cow !!!

After building several tanks and scratchs, I finally created "shame in the face" to end this girl ...

Let´s rock !!!!


In this period stopped, I decided to give a layer of paint on the deck and in the sides of the Oregon ...


Armour of the intermediary walkway : replacement of the rough plastic pieces by metal. A welding work is required:


.the weld in detail:



.. and the installation in the superstructure:



The alignment is fundamental:



Installation of more accessories and the provision of life-boats (dry-run):


Another dry-run :



Details on Turrets, cranes, ladders, etc.:
:




Ufa !!!


Finally, I float!

eehehehehehhehehehehehehehe


I promise not to stop the work in this great girl, until she is ready!

regards

The adventure continues! And getting better every time! I think that this probably one of the best (if not THE best) updates to an old, incorrect kit I've ever seen. So amazing and inspiring (and humbling)!

Dade, thanks for the words...

I'm half crazy and this project really took a course that was not planned. When I discovered that the deck intermediary was wrong, I just have a big job well, but I think that will be satisfactory ..

I'm adoring fix this girl!

Hi Marcos!

This is such a magnificent work it serves as both an inspiration and a valued reference for my current build of the Oregon for my Santiago diorama.

Keep up the good work!

Hi Marcos!

As a matter of fact, I have a pic of the Iowa in 1:225 posted today in the Predrednought Campaign thread. The basic model is roughed out and she is entering the detailing phase.

Thanks!

It is a pity that the whole ship has not been preserved ...

Yes, a real pity. What adds to the sting of this is that she had already been preserved as a museum piece when a local politician decided to donate her as scrap metal for the WW-II war effort, which was not needed, (only a " political stunt "). She was converted to an ammo storage barge during the war and then eventually disposed of.
By the way, as for the surviving remains, if a need arises for any detail views of these for your build, just send me a message, I live close by, and would be happy to go over there to take some closeup shots for you...............Patrick





a big hug

Ok Marcos, no problem !

Since I am not sure what you already have for reference, try to take an inventory of what you think might need, ie - closeup railing on the mast, rivet detail on the funnels etc. when you have an idea just send me a message..... ps..it is winter here so I will need to do this in between snow storms, if the weather forecast is correct ................Patrick

Fantastic work Marcos! (and my sincerest apologies for catching this build blog so late) The level of workmanship is impressive to say the least. You've shown an abundance of patience in fixing this old kit. Your PE/scratch built fabrications are a thing of beauty!

Looking forward to your next update,

Frank

Hi Marcos!

Though a bit blurry, here's a pic on my Oregon build: I've substituted a scratchbuilt superstructure deck and had it inset within the citadel. Also, please note the blast deck cover arcs on the main deck.
