This model represents the USS Indianapolis after she underwent overhaul
at Mare Island shipyard in June 1945. The rig of this model is correct for
the appearance of the "Indy Maru" when she carried the atomic bomb from the
US to the airbase on Tinian. She was sunk a few days later by the Japanese sub
HIJMS I-58, the last major US naval loss of WWII
