I remember building the plastic kit of this, either Revell or Monogram (I think Revell) and thinking how cool and space aged the missiles looked. Yeah, I'm old.

I had a model by AURORA.

Had to scrub her. Too much resin oil.

Hmmm;

 Although it's been a while I think I'll tag along too .I always thought she was an unusual layout for a U.S.N. Ship . One thing I always liked though was the Knuckled hull . It sheds water a lot better than most folks think .

 My experience with this design is less water on deck in rough weather and what there is is milder in comparison to the smooth hull design .

Hi;

 I always like this design . It seems the Navy was experimenting with deckhouse placement and seaworthiness .
