USS Arizona for DAZ Studio


USS Arizona for DAZ Studio

On December 7th, 1941 the Japanese Navy launched a surprise attack on the U.S. Navy and Army installations at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. The U.S.S. Arizona was a victim of the first wave of attacks when bombs detonated her forward powder magazines, blowing off her bow and sending her to the bottom… but that is only the end of a long story and a proud ship. Launched during WW1, the Arizona had many claims to mark her fame. She provided convoy protection in the Atlantic, training for gunnery, made several trips to Europe at the end of the war (including as part of the honor guard bearing President Wilson to the Paris peace talks) and even served as Admiral Nimitz’s Flagship for a time. She under-went several major refits (the last of which was finished just prior to her untimely demise), made numerous peace-time cruises and took part in many other major Fleet events and celebrations. The USS Arizona model includes over 70 moving parts, such as: guns, cranes, turrets, spotlights, and propellers.
