Mark Alkass of Florida built the HMS Abercrombie, British monitor, from the Trumpeter 1:350 scale model kit and entered it in the competition at the 2019 US IPMS National Convention. Some of the changes that Mark made in his build are: used
White Ensign Models brass photo-etch, added Northstar 4-Inch twin guns, Bofors 40mm twin guns and HACS directors; Model Master brass 15-Inch guns; Admiralty Modelworks ship's boats; Hawk Graphics flags; and EZ line rigging. The wooden
deck and admiral's barge were scratch-built. The plastic masts were replaced by brass rods and Tamiya acrylic paint used in painting.
