Richard Sliwka of the Show Me state, showed us his skill at the 2019 US IPMS National Convention. This entry of his is the USS Worcester CL-144, as seen in 1950.
The kit was from
Yankee Modelworks in 1:350 scale. To enhance his model Richard added discharge pipes/ports from brass tubing, as well as using brass to
scratch-build propeller shafts, struts and guards. The kit's barrels were replaced with brass barrels from Steve Nuttal for the 6-Inch/47 and Model Master for the
3-Inch/50. Resin parts from
Commanders/Iron Shipwright were used for the ship's boats and the HO3S helicopter. Winner 3rd Place Cruisers in 1:350 Scale.
