1/700 BB-45 USS Colorado 1944
She departed on 5 May passing Pearl Harbor and Kwajalein to the pre-invasion shelling at Saipan, Guam, and Tinian after 14 June. During the shelling of Tinian on 24 July she was damaged, 43 men were killed, and 198 wounded by 22 shell hits from Japanese shore batteries.
My work’s concept is the Colorado’s tired appearance, after battle of Tinian.
I will make a water base, later.
