I remember my older sisters having these kinds of hairdos! Otherwise this build log will be interesting. I have a fond place in heart for the Big E.

With all those bridge windows, it's hard not to wonder what that would look like in clear . . .

Did the Tamiya Big E ever come with the B-hive? I'd swear back in the day I remember it having the old radar array...

In 1967 BigE had no ciwis or sparrow missile launcher on the forward part of ship.

I was thinking to myself looking at photos of BigE when she had that fire. Nobody has done a 1/350 model showing her after the fire. I will let you known what I will do.
