Hello All,

I've just discovered that I cannot have my Revell TANEY kit finished as the OWASCO because the OWASCO was not the same class ship as the TANEY and now, I need to do it as the TANEY in 1944.

From the few photos that I have of the TANEY from that time frame, I've determined that she was armed with:

Four single 5-inch/38s in gunhouses

Six single 20-mm guns

As well as the obligatory depth charges

Would that be an accurate assessment?

Garth

Your thoughts on 1/350 Niko '44 Taney?

I like the four 5"/38s on this new offering by Niko and, with some spare parts and some scratchbuilding, I can imagine four other WWII-era Treasury class cutters being built from it, each with a different camouflage scheme. Does anyone share my enthusiasm? TIA, Sandy
