USS Vicksburg CG-69 [1/350]
This is the USS Vicksburg CG-69 build in a scale of 1/350.
About this creation
The Ticonderoga-class of guided missile cruisers is a class of warships in the United States Navy, first ordered and authorized in the 1978 fiscal year. The class uses passive phased-array radar and was originally planned as a class of destroyers. However, the increased combat capability offered by the Aegis Combat System and the AN/SPY-1 radar system was used to justify the change of the classification from DDG (guided missile destroyer) to CG (guided-missile cruiser) shortly before the keels were laid down for Ticonderoga and Yorktown.

Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruisers are multi-role warships. Their Mk 41 VLS can launch Tomahawk cruise missiles to strike strategic or tactical targets, or fire long-range antiaircraft Standard Missiles for defense against aircraft or anti-ship missiles. Their LAMPS III helicopters and sonar systems allow them to perform antisubmarine missions. Ticonderoga-class ships are designed to be elements of carrier battle groups, amphibious assault groups, as well as performing missions such as interdiction or escort.[1]

Of the 27 completed vessels, 19 were built by Ingalls Shipbuilding and eight by Bath Iron Works (BIW). All but one (Thomas S. Gates) of the ships in the class are named for noteworthy events in U.S. military history, and at least twelve; Ticonderoga, Cowpens, Anzio, Yorktown, Valley Forge, Bunker Hill, Antietam, San Jacinto, Lake Champlain, Philippine Sea, Princeton, Monterey, and Vella Gulf; share their names with World War II aircraft carriers.

"No, not at the moment. Besides this, Achintya alreday build one: http://www.moc-pages.com/home.php/67267"; Ah, yes, of course. Somehow I missed the fact that that model is in 1/350. I thought it was larger for some reason.

Quoting Red October Great work. Do you have any interest in designing a 1/350 Ford class model?

Quoting Duncan M. Could you maybe make the Port Royal? It would mean a lot!
The Port Royal looks like the same, so in fact this could be the Port Royal, too.

Very nice! For some reason, the Ticonderogas have always been one of my favorite warship classes. It would be neat (and probably very easy) to modify this model to turn it into one of the early pre-VLS Ticonderogas with the Mk26 rail launchers.

Quoting Jerry Temple Very nice ships! I recently got an old USS Long Beach (the US Navy's very first missile cruiser) kit by Revell and I decided that if I can ever build a halfway-decent ship in Lego that the Long Beach will be one of the first ones I build.
Thanks Jerry

Indeed the MK26 launcher would be a nicer detail than the just flat thing of a VLS but theres no good way to build it in 1/350.

Quoting David Roberts I like the way that you've shaped the bow and the light brackets that are lifeboat capsules. The helicopter and little boat are neat too.
