Okay, I really mean it this time, I'm going to make THIS kit my first resin ship model.  It's the Blue Water Navy 1/350th scale kit of the U.S.S. Farenholt, a Benson class destroyer.  I'm building her as she appeared around the time of the Guadalcanal naval battles, when she participated in Battle of Cape Esperance.
