Gary Kingzett's USS Oregon Model
Below is Mr. Gary Kingzett's super detailed Glencoe model of
the USS Oregon in person. I must say that the photos below do
not do justice to the superb work that he has put into this masterpiece.
Gary has taken this model to numerous model contests in the Eastern
United States and has come away with many top honors. What sets
this model apart from the rest, is that Gary has placed model
crewmembers on the ship. Each has a little scene to go with it,
bringing life to the model. Great job Gary on this model.

model by Glencoe in an underway setting.

forward port anchor winch are three crewmembers securing a line.
On the bridge are the watchstanders stering the USS Oregon
to its destiny and on the catwalk between the stacks (a little
hard to see from the scan) are two officers discussing the day's
Above: Here's a personal favorite. For anyone that
has been in the Navy, the fantail of the ship is a great place
to take a break from work and spin some yarn. The sailor on the
right is telling two shipmates about the big fish that got away,
but the story is going to be cut short. An officer approaches
from the passageway under the eight inch turret (Again hard to
see from the scan). This seems very familiar to me!!!!
