Trumpeter 1/200 Missouri build

Postby Jim Lauser » Wed Sep 23, 2015 11:28 am

Hi Everyone
Now that I have completed the Trumpeter Bismarck build (documented here under that title), I decided to move to another Trumpeter model, the Missouri. These first pics of the build show the contents of the box.
This first pic is of the box.

There were two pieces of the superstructure under the hull. The hull is in three pieces, the 46" piece as shown, and then two additional pieces that will complete the bow.

Also in the B box are all of the PE sheets supplied by Trumpeter. Some of these are multiples and every one has another sheet on the reverse side.

So, are these pieces supposed to be painted first? I know that seems (to you and others a rather obvious question), but to me... If I were to do this, not sure how I would do this.
