USS Miami CL-89

1/700 USS Miami CL-89 (Skywave/PitRoad)

First completion of 2023! It's the Skywave/PitRoad 1/700 kit of the Cleveland-class light cruiser USS Miami. I added photo etch from Tom's Modelworks and Gold Medal Models. Last photo shows her with a previously completed kit of the Baltimore class USS Pittsburgh. I thought the Clevelands and Baltimores were similar in size, but as seen here the heavy cruiser design was a bit larger.
