Remember the Maine - 1/600 Old Glory

I've been busy of late building a 1/35 BMP-3 IFV for my Tan army. In the meantime here's two versions of the USS Maine.

The original Maine, of Havana harbor fame.

And the second, BB-10.
I love this ship but OG/Merrimack didn't quite get it right.  To my eyes, the freeboard is too low (even with shimming the base a little with thin plywood), the upper works too towering.

I took these photos primarily for eBay purposes.  As I don't have a ballroom sized space to play on, now it's time for these to sail off to a new owner.
