Iron Shipwright's 1/350 USS Indianapolis has been upgraded to reflect her appearance after last refit. SC-1 Seahawks are from L'Arsenal. Many antennae were made from scratch/spare parts. Twin 20mm gunshields were cut from sheet plastic and 2 photo-etched 20mm guns were arranged side by side. The bow 20mm gun tubs were removed and new ones were made from sheet plastic. The antennae for the Mk 13 fire control radar were made from laminated sheet plastic sanded to shape. The seaplane fueling line on the starboard hull was removed as it was partially cast and was replaced with brass rod.
