USS Buchanan was one of the most highly decorated ships of WWII. She is modeled in 1/350 scale as she appeared and as outfitted during her service at Guadalcanal and in the Solomon Islands campaign between her completion on 21 March 1942 and damage repairs and refitting on 30 May 1943.

The model is 12 inches in length and comes mounted on a fine wood base covered with a durable acrylic case. The case measures 14.5" long, 3.5" wide and 7.5" high (including base), for a nice fit on almost any shelf.

This thoroughly researched model is respresentative of many early war Gleaves Class destroyers and demonstates exact scale accuracy and unprecedented detail. Photos of this model were choosen by the model's manufacturer for use in their 2009 catalog.
