1/200 Scale Model of USS Astoria. US Heavy Cruiser lost in 1942 off Savo Island near Guadalcanal.
About this creation
Here's my model of the heavy cruiser U.S.S. Astoria (CA-34) in 1/200 scale! She's about 112 studs long, or just under 3 feet. Astoria was a New Orleans class cruiser, and she was sunk at the Battle of Savo Island in August, 1942. The camouflage is accurate, if rather bland.

My first ship model using this technique for the hull, and I like it a lot, gives a pretty nice curve to the hull. All in all, I'm very pleased with how she turned out, with a couple of exceptions. Hope you like it!



Shown here with my 1/200 HMS Barham and a WIP USS Porter (that never really got finished).



Astoria with some large scale weapon mounts, from L to R 1/72 scale 5"/25 Cal mount (typical of many WWII US Navy ships, including Astoria), 1/100 scale twin 12" mount from an SMS Kaiser class super dreadnought, 1/72 scale triple 8"/55 Cal mount (typical of a New Orleans class cruiser), and finally a 1/72 scale dual 4.1" HA mount, used on a number of Royal Navy ships (including HMS Barham as rebuilt).



So this is the inside of the ship, all of the decks aren't attacked and simply set on the internal supports.
