U.S.S. Halford Aurora Model - Fine Scale Modeler Magazine - 07/01/1997

Fine Scale Modeler magazine ran an interesting story on the Aurora version of the U.S.S. Halford. The issue date was July, 1997 (ICD08285) and included interesting information such as the model was not an actual model of the Halford at all. In fact, it contained references to other ships it more closely resembled. Here is the article in full for you to look at.
