USS Maddox DD-731 - Tonkin Gulf Incidence 
by Frank Chan 

1/700 USS Maddox DD-731 (Pit-Road)

The Tonkin Gulf incidence was the short-term cause of the Vietnam War. The USS Maddox DD-731 claimed that it was attacked by four torpedo boats from the Northern Vietnam Force. I marked the torpedo tracks on the water base. Although this incidence is controversial —Whether there had really been this incidence or not, the topic itself is intriguing. I made this with Pit-Road USS Maddox Kit with some modification that refers to the ship in 1964. Sailor figures were also added.
