I hope one day to see the model on display in Washington. This is a treasure for all who care about the USS Houston (CA-30). Kudos to all involved in the arrangements.

Jo, I had an uncle, since deceased, who was a Marine who served on the Houston during those early days of WWII. When I was a youngster I was fortunate to see this model on display at the State Fair of Texas in the Texas history building back in the 1950's. I'd often wondered what became of it and had been search for some time. Thank heavens for the internet. I too hope one to day soon to visit the Washington Navy Yard and see it again in person. But until that time comes, might it be possible to obtain some detailed pictures of the model? My reason for asking is that I've been working for some time on a model of the ship that I'd like to present to the Nimitz Museum of the Pacific over in Fredericksbug, TX in honor of all those who served on her. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated, thank you, LTMiller
