Help !! Big Boo-Boo done in my shop !
Posted by Tanker - Builder on Friday, August 9, 2019 4:05 PM

See;

        I can and do make stupid mistakes. At the time I got it there were no models of the Missouri in 1945 fit. So I thought I would take the New Jersey and back date it.They were Both IOWAS right ?

       So I figured I could have my Missouri that way. Well,I cut All the center decking and part of the aft deck off. Forgot to save the pieces. Well, I Thought I would take it of the shelf of Doom and finish it.

       It was then that I realized i had neither the deck pieces I removed Or the Instruction Book . Then it hit me .You stupid A##%(&@ ! ! can anyone here help this Stupid old man . Money is a problem or I would just go and buy the new Tamiya Missouri in the 1945 fit !

    I still can't but think " What a Doofus ! ! Oh,I guess that means I am human. Tanker-Builder   P.S. I guess if it doesn't get built as a B.B. I would imagine an Aircraft Carrier Hybrid or a Passenger ship Hybrid ,or a Tanker Hybrid? Come to think of it ,If they could hybridize cruisers into carriers ,Why Not an Iowa?

I can’t help on the instruction booklet, although a couple of sites probably have them available for download, but I might have a spare aft main deck part if that is what you need...

Tank, will a picture of my 1945 MO. help, I built it back in about 85 or so for my best friend. He was the one who got blown out of the water on the first bunch in. I just found out from his son in law that he was carrying a load of UDT guys for the beach. 

                 I asked him one time if he ever had battle fatigue & he said no, but I was plenty scared when I was there. My brother took the MO out on her first voyage from Pearl, on the Indiana.

              You weren't any dumber than the rest of us, maybe a little unlucky.

I've been working on the Missouri for a while. Got the big aftermarket Pontos set for it. I have been struggling somewhat so have to work on it then set it aside etc.

 

Anyway, it is the Tamiya #78018 1/350 scale kit. Has paint schemes for 1944 and 1945.

I've marked up my copy of the instructions, but I can PDF them and send them to you if they are what you need / want.

Send me your e-mail addy.

Yes, I have a spare deck, fore & aft, for a 1/350 Tamiya 1945 Missouri. It’s all yours TB. I just need to find a proper size box for safe mailing.

Kool, Stik;

      What would you need or like in exchange? I have to try to return the favor somehow.

TB,

I have an extra kit that I have used as part of my spare parts bin.  I can send a replacement deck if you still need one.
