That is a sweet little lady. I can guess those open guns would have been a bear to man during battle. thanks for sharing.

Great looking tin can Skipper. One thing good about it was that it was well ventilated. Gator

Thanks guys! When I acquired these Midship Models (4 Maham's + 1 Benham) I though that they would be great models They are a very good base, they bring lots of extras (bridges, weaponry, boats, rafts, radars, the LOT), but when compared with what they should be, it leaves a great GAP... I guess that this is one of the reasons for not seeing too many of these TinCan's built - strange for a recent 1/700 US destroyer. As for the sea, I have used my usual technique as describe in the "Wet Your Ships" Feature. Once again, thanks for your compliments Skipper
