If you're looking to build a more accurate pre-war to early war Arizona, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, or Nevada then you need to take a look at this upgrade from 3D Model Parts.


Included in the set, are two fighting tops, the gun tub also known as the "birdbath", and two searchlight towers that go on either side of the funnel.  The tops are hollow inside with open windows and realistic bracing outside.  The searchlight platforms are also hollow.  The wall thickness is is kept to a minimum.  The parts have a slight texture to him as a result of the 3D printing process but nothing too noticeable.

Compared to the tops in the existing resin and plastic kits on the market these are a remarkable improvement.  This is kit # U718 1/700 Fighting Tops for Arizona, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, and Nevada (BB36-39) are available here for $6.95. Highly recommended!
