Dale Mason of Ohio attended the 2019 US IPMS National Convention in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and entered his build of the Trumpeter USS Massachusetts BB-59 in 1:350 scale. The hull was water-lined and placed in a sea base of Liquitex Acrylic,
which was painted with sea colored acrylic Polyscale paint and dry-brushed with white enamel. Several different sets of brass photo-etch were used. The 20mm Oerlikons are from L'Arsenal and the figures are from North Star, painted with Model
Master paints. The weathering was done with enamel washes and dry-brushing.
