1/350 USS SIgsbee rescue (Various)

Sigsbee was hit by a kamikaze on 4/14/45 off Okinawa.. The port prop and shaft survived as did her engines so there was power to the pumps. ATF Muncie takes her in tow, while an LCS(L) gunboat-”Pallbearers” as they were known on the radar picket line- runs  AA interference.
