U.S.S. Indianapolis “1944”
Here’s my rendition of the famous U.S.S. Indianapolis. It is the Trumpeter 1/350 scale 1944 version. It is mostly out of the box, with a Eduard railing set, made for the Academy kit, so it took some adjusting to make work, and some supplemental PE rails from my spares box.
I made one of the SOC Seagull scout planes with it’s wings folded and the folded open, accordian style hangar door is made from scrap PE material. The crane hoist wheel and block are from scrap sprue and a tank tread connector link.
This project was started in November, and it has been a “one step forward, two steps back” process it seems…mostly due to oversights on my part..but all in all I am pleased with the outcome.
Thanks for watching and stay tuned for more…
