Well, I'm "over the top" on Vittorio Veneto so I was itching to start another build to run concurrent with her. I found this little jewel along with USS West Virginia and USS Oklahoma on Ebay. This was a part of a modelers' collection that went up for liquidation. The model is trademark stamped by "H.G. Watkins" dated 1977. The model came on 11" x 17" sheets of thin paper, not cardstock and had been printed in all black and white. The design was compelling for such an old model. I scanned the original black and whites into tiff files and then took them to microsoft paint for color and some clean-up work. The decks didn't have any board lines in them, so I added those for better realism. The finished product turned out very well after several hours of coloring and editing. Here's some photos of the parts sheets and instructions. I printed the parts to 110 pound cardstock. Let the fun begin!
