Depends on what you want to do with them.
If you want to display them, I prefer a full hull model.
If you want to use them for war gaming, obviously a waterline version would be preferable.

Full hull seemed ... wrong when I built my first model in 1961. "That's not how I see them." I built all the OBBs at Pearl and made a mockup of Ford Island.
