1/700 USS Long Beach CGN-9 (Dragon)
Here's my most recently-completed 1/700 ship, the Dragon USS Long Beach as she appeared in 1980. In this configuration the aft Talos launcher had been removed and replaced with a Harpoon missile launcher - this was subsequently changed to a Tomahawk box launcher.
I found it to be a great kit and a pleasure to build; nicely detailed and good fit throughout. I added Gold Medal Models railings to enhance model.
