New project for the year. Backdating and converting Trumpeterís 1/700 1945-fit USS New York to a 1914-fit USS Texas. Lots of sawing and sanding before there will be any new parts added.

Daniel,
I look forward to watching your 1914 Texas emerge from the not-very-similar 1945 New York. This is such a comprensive rebuild - it is almost a scratchbuild! Good luck with it.

Thanks, I'll post pics as I progress. Managed to get the starboard armor sawed away, time to work on reshaping both sides.
