"Tico" the first of the Ticonderoga class
I have always been fascinated by the Spruance and Ticonderoga class ships. Today it is not easy to get a kit that I would like to build again. This kit is from Revell, 1/700 scale and I was pleasantly surprised compared to other brands. I have built it some time ago for a gift. Generic photoetches were used for the railings and the Flyhawk set for the radars. All the masts have been rebuilt with copper wire and brass, as well as other small details of reinforcements with plasticard and chains with copper wire. Unicaenis has been used for the wiring and the paintings are by Humbrol with small pastel effects. The water base has been made with styrofoam, mediun gel and cotton.
