Description

In the annals of the U.S. Navy, it is difficult to believe there is a more iconic vessel than the USS Arizona. Famously sunk at Pearl Harbor with the loss of 1,177 crew, the Pennsylvania-class battleship became a rallying cry as the nation entered World War II. That moment has made Arizona a perennially favorite modeling subject with kits in most of the major ship scales; Revell’s classic 1/426 scale offering has been around since 1957 and continues to be reissued.

If you plan to build any of those, pick up Super Drawings in 3D: The Battleship USS Arizona, one of Kagero Publishing’s masterful references. The brief history that opens to the 94-page softcover is almost incidental because the real reason you need this book starts on Page 12. That main attraction is page after page of beautifully rendered computer-generated images of the battleship in her final refit and camouflage. Those images are organized like a virtual walkaround, showing various equipment and crew positions from different angles. They show the kinds of details that modelers crave when they want to ensure their replica is as accurate as possible.

If that’s not enough to whet your appetite, the book includes 1/350 scale 5-view plans of the ship and a pair of 3D-glasses to fully appreciate the final 22 pages that feature true 3D-images of sections of the ship. Grab your copy today to build that fitting tribute.
