Felix "Candyman" Bustelo seems awfully confident that he knew the identity of the April Mystery Model #1. Of course, already having the kit in his basement might help give him an edge. Although April Mystery Model #1 was on the easy side of identification, April Mystery Model #2 is not quite as well known. Can you identify the name of the ship, scale of the model and name of manufacturer?  Please post all answers to the message board. Charlie Scardon was first to identify this model. "Mystery Model 2 is the USS Atlanta or USS Boston. The offset barbette and the little round conning tower are a dead give away. Probably 1/350 ISW." Germa Coenders went further in narrowing the selection between the two sisterships. "I agree. The question is which one of the two. Atlanta was the name ship of the class, and Boston was in the Philippines squadron. ISW seems to be committed to providing most of the ships of the Philippines squadron (Olympia, Charleston, Monterey...), so my guess would be for Boston, ISW, 1/350th." It is the USS Boston, protected cruiser, from Commanders/Iron Shipwright in 1:350 scale.
