These are photographs
for my build of Lone Star's 1/192 scale Foote-class torpedo boat,
USS WINSLOW, TB-5.
saw action during the Spanish-American war, most notably at the Battle of
Cardenas, where she was extensively damaged by shore batteries.
Remarkable valor was
present aboard WINSLOW
during this action. Ensign Worth Bagley was killed in action and has since had
four US Navy ships named in his honor. WINSLOW
also produced three Medal of Honor recipients from this battle, Chief Gunner's
Mate George Brady, Chief Gunner's Mate Hans Johnson, and Chief Machinist Thomas
The kit is
essentially out of the box, except for lifeboats from the spares stash (when I
built the model, I did not know the Winslow
carried collapsible boats), and the platform surrounding the forward deckhouse
for the forward gunners. The platform is made from card. The ladders on the side
of the hull are made from strip styrene.
