USS Mobile Bay CG-53, 1/700 Fujimi

Recommended Posts

Hello :D

 

I would like show to You the first maritime kit i have made after a few years of building aircraft kits. I have chosen USS Mobile Bay, a Ticonderoga class guided missile cruiser because I love the mighty silhouette of these ships! 

The Fujimi kit is very accurate and includes some PE parts. I used Master 127mm gun barrels and scratch build the main mast. The water effect is made with help of AK Interactive water gel. 

I tried to show the ship in a tide turn, I hope that You will like it ;)

Looks great but I think the curve of the wake at the rear looks to sharp just my opinion though

Great result.  I love the way the ship is listing. It is unusual to see such a dramatic pose in a maritime model. 

 

I saw quite a few of this class at Norfolk Naval Base when I took a boat trip on the Elizabeth River last September.

Gidday, Maybe they've just been told they're going on leave! Seriously, I like the way the ship heels as it is turning. Regards, Jeff.

Great looking ship, very nice work.....

 

Brings back memories, I cross-decked onto Mobile Bay and stayed there for 3 days when we (RAN task group) tacked onto the Independence Battle Group back in the early 90s. Felt like I was sailing in a Death Star !! The crew were fantastic, I sat out on the FWD VLS as the sun was setting playing guitar with another guy, and the crew threw a "Steel Beach BBQ" for me before I returned to my ship !!!

 

Anyway war stories over - love the model !!
