This is Dragon's Benson/Gleaves class as USS Hobson late 1942. I did this one as Hobson because of the unique camo pattern. Mostly OOB, but with Master Model Oerlikons, and Gold Medal PE. Crew figures are froml'Arsenal.

Thanks! I have to say, though, that my water is not too convincing. These were models I built several years ago, and wasn't doing water very well then. I have gotten better since!
