Default 1/700 Niko Models USS Dale DD-353

In October I built a 1/700 scale of the USS Dale (DD-353) which was at Pearl Harbor for John Cruce USN Ret. He was aboard the ship on December 7th 1941 and was part of her crew until the end of the war. John also assisted in documenting the history of this ship in the book "Tales from a Tin Can: The USS Dale from Pearl Harbor to Tokyo Bay" By Michael Keith Olson.

This is a 1/700 scale resin model made by Niko Models. I utilized some extra PE for ladders, doors, and railings. The ship was painted as she was in 1943 on her return from her duty in the aleutian Islands.

John will turn 100 years old next month. (yes that is the model he is holding in the picture)

To read more of John and the crew of the USS Dale:
