USS Sterett

Just finished the scale 1:400 model of this US Navy destroyer from WW II, Pacific Theatre of War, USS Sterett. Before this I already built the model of the Gridley Class destroyer USS Craven DD 382.

Glad to see another of your works of art. To my eye, the pre-WWII U.S. Treaty Destroyers were among the best-looking destroyers ever. Your models are a treat for the eye, and I really like Sterett in this 1942 camouflage that the ship wore operating out of Scapa Flow, with the Malta Convoys, and in the South Pacific.
