1/700 USS Miami CL-89

This is a resin kit that included a few sheets of PE details that I built almost completely out of the box. I did add after-market 5"/38 guns and turrets as well as 40mm Bofors, and 20mm Oerlikon guns. I've found that photoetch AA is rarely as[...]

1/350 Oliver Hazard Perry (Academy)
