USS Tacoma PG-92 1/130 Scale Display Model
It was powered by twin diesel engines combined with one gas turbine giving it a maximum speed of 37 knots. It was armed with one 3 50 in the forward turret and one 40mm mount on the stern. It also had twin 50 caliber machine guns on either side of the superstructure. She served with distinction during the Vietnam War. This model in 1/130 scale was constructed from the out of production Revell kit. The searchlights have been enhanced with high quality rhinestones for lenses. It is mounted on a nicely finished hardwood base and includes an acrylic dust cover (which is slightly marred by a crack on one of the end panels as is visible in the photograph). This model makes for a very nice display piece that will not disappoint. About the builder: My name is Tory Mucaro and I have been building models for the last 45 years.
