When they made the movie Tora Tora Tora, they built large models of all the battleships. When the film was done the Nevada model was still intact. The studio donated it to a Navy Vets group in Long Beach, CA. They put it on a big trailer, and take it to events all over Southern California. They sell BB39 ball caps to support their efforts. In 2012 I went to a DLG open house at Seal Beach and saw the model. I also bought a BB36 ball cap, which I still treasure.
