Brilliant,I remember being transfixed watching a program many years ago showing a large RC model of this ship with many functions.If I am correct,I think it was built by a modeller by the name of Brian McFadden.It was fully scratchbuilt long before the days of Fleetscale's semikits.
Correction to my original post,after some digging it was was Alex McFayden who built the model.Got confused with a member of a Boy Band
I can't find any pics to speak of but here is a later creation of his,the proposed battleship design that was never built,G3.
Fascinating. I had the opportunity to spend a few nights and days on the battleship USS Massachusetts. Our local BSA troop would travel to Fall River, Massachusetts and spent two nights and days berthed on the ship. It was great opportunity to explore and marvel at the size and complexity of the ship.
