For the first Mystery Model of the Year, this model is of a warship with a unique bow. Although this was not the only ship in the class, it was the only one to have this prowl. The ship had more than one name in her career. You can identify her by any name that she used but because the bow was unique, not the class name or name of a sistership. Can you identify the name of the ship, scale of model and name of manufacturer? Please post all answers to the message board.
