Simply put, your model is how I would like my ship models to look! Your skill, craftsmanship, and artistry is excellent. Like Tim said, there is so much to look at - such splendid work. I will go back and look at some of the photos again. You really seem to have put a lot of research into her.
Dear colleagues, thank you very much for your compliments, I'm glad that you like my model. I used many very helpful books: «USS Alabama on deck», "South Dakota class battleships» ( Warship pictorial), «The battleship USS Alabama» (Top Drawings from Witold Koszela), "USS Alabama" (images of America) from Kent Whitaker, USS Battleships 1941-1963 from Wayne Scarpaci.
