These are some photographs of my USS Nashville CL43, as the cruiser appeared in the Pacific in October 1944 at Leyte Gulf. My idea was to show the ship in a scene as General McArthur comes aboard the ship, transferred by a PT boat. I have seen this picture on several books. The kit was a mix of the old Honolulu Naval Works kit and a newer Corsair Armada hull. I have replaced most of the small parts and have scratch new open funnels.
