This model ship of the USS Arizona sits in the Valor in the Pacific National Monument in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. It was part of the exhibit allowing for blind visitors, providing tactile elements in the exhibit. The USS Arizona was created using a cold-cast bronze process. Bronze powder is suspended in resin and cast. This process creates a durable engineering model that can withstand many years of handling.
