    Yes. And I was just guessing on my age, it might have been when I was younger. But I still have it. Only one of all the models I built as a kid.

    Regarding the storage structure in front of Turret 2 and not seeing it on models, I have a model of Iowa I built when I was probably 12.

    Still have it here on my desk, a little worse for the wear...

    Minor point, but North Carolina is lead ship of her own class, not a South Dakota like Massachusetts and Alabama.

    But yeah, I get your overall point. They were all put to sleep after the war...

    Yep, my point about Olympia was that they had an embezzlement issue. I guess that can fall under the giant umbrella of "lack of interest" but I was looking for a bit more detailed reason.

    You answer was in the first sentence. "It's a game".

    I suspect that the designers have a bit of bias against US ships. The US Battleships in-game should be much more accurate than they are, and...

    With Olympia and Texas, I think it was more of a case of mismanagement, wasn't it?

    That happened. AP shells would go all the way through un-armored or lightly-armored targets and either not explode or explode harmlessly in the sea.

    just something made up for the game.

    There is such thing as an armored citadel on a bBattleship, but there's no such term as a "citadel shot".

    Yes, it's wrong. But also yes, smaller caliber fire could and did certainly start fires on Battleships. Just ask South Dakota at Guadalcanal.

    But as for a topside fire gradually sinking the...

    Always wondered about the cap color and figured that soot was the reason.

    Like this pic of the USS Colorado: The aft cage mast, the upper part is painted black...or is it covered in soot?

    Very nice. The paint on that car is significantly better than any car ever was back then. That's some shiny black.

    I thought that back then the Tomahawks didn't have anti-ship capability? Or that the Iowas didn't carry them if they did?

    I find just about all of that pretty hard to believe, especially since our recently-departed and highly-respected RustyBattleship was the lead man on the NJ's reactivation. He wrote a book about the...
