USS England DE-635 was the most highly decorated Escort Destroyer of WWII. She is modeled here in 1/350 scale as she appeared and as outfitted in late May 1944 when in just eight days she sank six Japanese submarines in the Bougainville area of the Solomon Islands, earning a Presidential Citation and prompting CNO Admiral King to say "there will always be an England in the US Navy". And there still is a commisioned USS England to this day.

The model is 10.25 inches in length and comes mounted on a fine wood base covered with a durable acrylic case that measures 12" long, 3.5" wide and 7" high (including base), for a nice fit on any shelf.

This thoroughly researched model is respresentative of any of the 102 Buckley Class destroyer escorts of WWII and demonstates exact scale accuracy and unprecedented detail.
