The USS Washington (BB-56) is one of two battleships we are currently working on. To this point, we have cleaned the model, and identified the repairs and modifications that need to be completed. Roy Johnson is currently modifying the main mast, while Gary Hatherly is preparing to add rails, replace guns and fixtures, and repaint the ship. Joe Myers, Chris Bernique, Joe Bosco, Dave Corvino, and Rick Reinert have prepared the model for these next steps. Also being worked on is the USS South Dakota (BB-57), which needs much the same work.
