Definitely 1943 or later, but Tassafaronga has nothing to do with it. This is CA-25, not CA-24. Following her Tassafaronga damage, CA-24 had the after superstructure and aft tripod mast replaced by a new structure because the after fire controls had been burned out. CA-25 retained the tall forward tripod and the shorter after tripod all the way to her end.



Uh,,,yeah,,, I knew that :roll: Brain is just not what it used to be :dead:

Hi Rick,
It is a still from color footage. I’ll see if I can find it again and post the link.

Jeff,

Not knowing the source of the image, I suspect this is a colorized image. Look around some features where the "sky" meets ship, particularly the masts, a "white/lighter" margin is apparent.

Looks good. I wish I had plans for what was in the open areas under the gun deck. Looks like torpedo launchers forward, but I have no idea of the rest.

Impressively crisp detail for that scale.

Like the prewar look of these Cruisers so much ...

I just posted this on Steel Navy, so I might as well post it here, too:

I started on a pattern for both the Pensacola and Salt Lake City (the hulls have minor differences), but then heard of someone doing a 3D one, so I set mine aside.

I have decided to go ahead with at least one of each, as soon as I get two other project out of the way that are near completion.

My intent is to do applicable versions for the Battle of the Kormandorky Islands (CA-25),the Battle of Tassafaronga (CA-24) and then go from there. Any suggestions are welcomed, if they include a diagram or description of AA and radar fit. I have the plans from Warship International, the Profile Morskie book, some photos from the Floating Drydock, and some others that I have collected online. I also plan to comb the CASF thread on MW for information, but if you have any drawings or photos you'd like to contribute, you can send them to mikecap07 (AT) gmail (DOT) com and I'll give your contribution credit in the instructions.

My kit will include etch and I'm hoping to include 3D small parts, if I can find a reliable source.

I have seen both the HP, Classic Warships and its updated Midship version and all are inaccurate or crude (hand scribed deck planks on the HP kit?), so I have also felt that there is a hole needing to be filled.

This is a public statement, so I am committed to it now. I'll post updates as they become available.


Mike, I'm looking forward to getting these new Corsair Armada products when they become available.

Here's another annoying Wiki error that probably needs to be fixed. This photo (from Australian sources) purports to be HOUSTON escorting the Timor Relief Convoy in Feb. 1942, but it is not...The distinguishing swayback hull line, 2 aft turrets and more pronounced clipper bow all point to PENSY.

The convoy is the famed one named after her. Transport to the R is quite likely CHAUMONT, but the one to L is a mystery to me. Any ideas welcome.

Found this picture while researching destroyer tenders. Salt Lake City after the Battle of the Komandorski Islands.

If anyone is interested, I've got the HP Models 1/700 USS Pensacola (1941), available in the trade section of the forum. Check the post out if interested.

thanks
Mike

Anyone know of and/or have plans for the Pensacola around late 1942?

Interesting, thanks. I just assumed they had to be there but I guess I'll leave them out. There are definitely director tubs for the 1.1" quads on the stern, but I can't work out if they're empty!

It is possible that she didn't have any. Not all 1.1 mounts had directors. Quincy had them, Vincennes did not. Astoria got 4 director tubs when the 1.1's were installed, but she only got directors a month before she was lost, and then only on the bridge. Her stern director tubs were empty when she was sunk. Yorktown never had any.
