Part #MTL-038 00 410 N Scale Supply Price: Sold Out
New: March 2008

USS Astoria was one of three heavy cruisers guarding the northern approach to Guadalcanal and Tulagi, and was the
only one afloat after a blistering night action against a Japanese cruiser force. However, she was gravely damaged
in this Battle of Savo Island. Though her crew struggled all through the morning of 9 August to save their ship, USS
Astoria succumbed to her wounds shortly after noon, sinking into the depths of a body of water that would soon be
called “Iron Bottom Sound,” in recognition of all the ships that were lost there.
