|Chicagoland's own Charles Scardon brought T-Town to Chattanooga's 2019 US IPMS Nationals for a match of the Crimson Tide versus the Moccasins. Charles built the USS Tuscaloosa from the Trumpeter 1:700 scale kit of the USS San Francisco.
He changed the bridge and 5-Inch gun shields. The 5-Inch/25 and 1.1-Inch Chicago Pianos (how appropriate) are from Blue Ridge Models. Photo-etch is from Tom's Modelworks. The model was painted with Colourcoats.
