A Few Items for Sale

U.S.S. Arizona Battleship
Revell 1/426th Scale

This U.S.S. Arizona battleship model was built and painted by my son, Philip, who was 10 years old at the time. It is the stock 1/426th scale U.S.S. Arizona Revell kit. Spray cans of Testors enamel paint were used for the hull and deck, and the small Testors bottles of colors were used for the airplanes and detail work. His effort paid off with a 1st Place ribbon at the 2005 Dixie Classic Fair in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Philip was at one time an ardent World War II history enthusiast, being especially interested in the naval battles of the South Pacific.
