1/310 USS Brooke FFG-1 (Monogram)
This venerable Monogram kit of USS Brooke is nicely shaped but a bit minimalist on detail, which would make it a likely candidate for some super detailing if it wasn't for the odd 1/310 scale. I have built several of these. The Brooke was controversial at time it was commissioned in 1966 being a 'single screw' vessel. It was intended as an amphibious group escort or ASW ship.
