USS Pennsylvania/Arizona History:
The Pennsylvania class consisted of two super-dreadnought battleships built for the United States Navy just before the First World War. The ships were named Pennsylvania and Arizona, after the American states of the same names. They constituted the United States’ second battleship design to adhere to the “all or nothing” armor scheme, and were the newest American capital ships when the United States entered the First World War.
On 7 December 1941, the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor sank Arizona in a tremendous explosion and slightly damaged Pennsylvania, which was in dry dock at the time. Arizona‘s wreck was later partly salvaged and is now a war memorial.
Pennsylvania came back into service more quickly than many of the other battleships present during the attack; it left on 20 December and was under repair in San Francisco until 30 March 1942. For the next several months, Pennsylvania was stationed on the United States’ West Coast, before being reassigned to Pearl Harbor as the fleet flagship for a short time (August to October). After another refit in San Francisco, which lasted until February 1943, the ship was sent to assist American forces engaged in the Aleutian Islands Campaign. During this time, Pennsylvania was nearly hit by a torpedo from Japanese submarine I-31, which was later sunk.

This is a great addition to my collection of Cobi ships, I assembled it as the USS Arizona and now have it on the shelf next to the USS Missouri. The hull was simple to construct while the super structure took a bit of time and dexterity of my fingers. I’m very happy with the build.
Beth (verified owner) –
Great set! My son loved putting it together. Great customer service.
Vernon Ellis Simpson (verified owner) –
Just opened my USS Pennsylvania kit last night. Service was fast, box and contents in perfect shape. This will make a great companion for my Iowa BB. Vern

I constructed this as the Pennsylvania.
I have the Arizona specific kit coming soon.
Agree with everyone on the aesthetics of the build. And specifically with Jeff on building the superstructure. Felt like I needed smaller fingers for part of it. But like most kits with small pieces I put a dab of clear Elmer’s glue to keep them in place. Tricky part is keeping the cat from going all Godzilla on the ships.

Great addition to my collection. Very important historical ship. Great service from War Bricks as usual. Great product!
Patrick (verified owner) –
Build overall is fun and looks great on my desk. The only issue I had was that some of the rods for the tripod masts are really tight fitting and hard to pull out if you over insert them. I hope Cobi makes more older style battleships for my collection.
