Building the Ships of the
Naval Battle of Guadalcanal
13 November 1942 In 1/700 Scale
by Timothy Dike

This Month we will begin a series on building the US Fleet that participated in the Naval Battle of Guadalcanal November 13th, 1942 in 1/700 scale. Those that know me know I have always been fascinated by this period. Combine that with my love of modeling and you have got the makings for a long-winded article, as I plan to address each ship individually.
