This is a build from old snap-shot size photos for a friend and everything will be glued down to a nice piece of wood for desk-top display. AD 24 U.S.S. Everglades, a Klondike-class destroyer tender, was not completed in time for WWII service but was commissioned for duty in 1951 and served into the 1960's. My build of it is from balsa, sheet plastic, note-card, broom-stick bristle, and some pieces filched from the parts box. The Fletcher class cans alongside are Tamiya kits out of the box. Everglades lingered in the ready reserve fleet and wasn't sold for scrap until 2001.
