Hull has been camouflaged. In the end I decided to use all three paints from my earlier post. And that was a good decision. I'm really satisfied with the result.
Photos below.

Superstructures will be the next step...

This will probably sound funny but this flat white part was the most difficult thing to make so far! For a long time I couldn't find the shape of it. The major problem with 1944 Maryland is that it's like a combination of Maryland from Pearl Harbor period & 1945 Maryland. And there are no blueprints or drawings from that time. I have to use those from 1941 & 1945. And obviously pictures are the most helpful thing...

Great, that looks complicated, many inputs and outputs. From here it looks great. I have to get one of those giant coins, here we do not have.

WIP update. Some more progress on superstructures.
It's really a tedious work. 1/1000 is incredibly small scale but I like it. There's just something special in these little models.
Continuation tomorrow.

WIP update...
All that research takes a lot of time, about 80% of this project.

Much more work than I thought with that superstructure. Everything goes really slow. Now I want to reach the mast and then come back to the details like AA weapons. Thankfully I still have unused PE parts from my old 1/700 USS Colorado. I'll cut a bit that smaller mast to adapt it to 1/1000 and should be fine.

Today's photo report below.
