Here is the USS Santee in 1944. I used the Iron Shipwrights 1/350 Sangamon kit and modified it to be the Santee. I added scratch built 20 mm tubs on the bow, searchlight platform on the stern, additional details to the bow and island, and the aircraft crane. I used Master Models 40mm kits and Blue Ridge Models 20 mm mounts. I used Trumpeter aircraft. I used AK Interactive acrylics and True Color paints on her. This was my first attempt at spinning props on a couple of the aircraft and I think it turned out pretty decent. I mounted her in a piece of Styrofoam and made the sea from acrylic gel medium that was painted and glossed. I build her for man whose Grandfather served on her in WWII.

Sorry I must be technology challenged because I don't know why some of the pictures are sideways. They are all upright on my computer. I have uploaded lots of pics here so I don't know what I did wrong this time.

It's not you, it's the forum. The forum is too old to understand the orientation data attached to photos taken by modern devices. They show up correctly if you click on them to view them at full size, however, because then it's the browser that's reading the orientation data rather than the forum, and the browser is much more up to date.
