Built in 1953 the USS Carronade is a little too new for a WW2 era layout but it’s the perfect size and is at least plausible. At 1:170 Lindberg’s kit is pretty darn close to N scale. The most challenging part of the project was “waterlining” the hull so it would sit flat.
The light gray of a naval warship doesn’t really contrast very well against light gray warehouses. It is what it is.
