Yes indeed, the USS Arizona Memorial Museum Association (AMMA) located at the Pearl Harbor Memorial visitors center, does have the model of the USS Arizona as well as many other related items for sale.

AMMA is operated by a group of really hard working, dedicated individuals.

Go to their web site at:

http://www.weblane.com/arizonamemorial/bookstore/

You can see items of interest to the Pearl Harbor.

The book-store accepts Visa, Mastercard, or American Express if you order online.

Or, you can print out the order form from the web-site and mail it along with
a check or Money Order to AMMA

Their mailing address is:

Arizona Memorial Museum Association
1 Arizona Memorial Place
Honolulu, Hawaii 96818 USA
azmemph@aol.com

They have orders by phone, as well. (808) 422-5664 ext. 120. I have used this method and was well pleased with the service. Just call, leave your name, telephone number and the time of day AMMA should
contact you.

FAX (808) 541-3168.

Regards,

Don Schaaf

There are four models of the USS Arizona available if you want to build one. Revell released two plastic models (one in about 1/420th scale, about 15" long, the other in about 1/720th scale, around 10" long if memory serves). Banner Models from China has released a 1/350th plastic model, and Tom's Modelworks has a resin kit. The first two are in the บ-15 range, the Banner kit is around ำ, and the Tom's is about 贶 (unbuilt) if you go with the waterline version (full hull is more) None of them are completely accurate but the capture the overall look of the ship well. I just wrote a review of the Banner kit for internet modeler I can link to if anyone is interested (it's not posted yet) and have built both of the Revell kits. Have not seen the Tom's kits.

For an educational display or anything to be filmed, the model should be of the 1/350 scale size or larger.  Note that a 1/350 scale Arizona would be about 21 inches long.  A good size for display is 1/16 scale. That would give you a model about 38 inches long, and able to be quite detailed.

Good Luck,

Brian OConnor
