You may not remember it, but is was a five gun Fletcher with the quad 40's amidship. Bennion was never configured that way. As the story goes Aurora was going to issue Bennion as The Sullivans, but Revell beat them to the Sullivans name.
As a kid I did not know a square bridge from a round bridge, and I thought all Fletchers had the quad 40's. Don't even think I would have cared if I had known. Great little model for its day. Must have build 30 maybe more at 69 cents a pop.
