USS Long Beach CGN-9 1980

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.
