This is a model I made a long time ago. It was built by mistake in 1/500 scale. At the time, I envisioned building one example of each US dreadnought class in plastic or paper. In paper, I build in 1/550 scale although I am not particular in plastic. I discovered the scale error when I laid this model next to another model that should have been longer but which wasn't. So it doesn't match the rest of my fleet, but it isn't bad and probably looks better than the stuff I'm building these days.
