That looks so right. Love the new bridge for sure, and the paint scheme. What are the sprues up top from, with the Chinooks ?

Nice one - the end result is very rakish: almost Italian in feel. :thumbsup:

Thanks guys!

If I recall correctly, the chinook sprues are the Skywave "Equipment for Modern Ship (V)"

Yeah, that was it. It should look like this: https://www.amazon.com/Skywave-Equipment-Accessories-Modern-Warships/dp/B004E4H1SC

Yeap when Skywave/Pitroad sold some of its Ship Kit tools to Dragon they redid and updated their modern USN/JMSDF equipment sprue with the Chinook and Cobra

You could actually have a bit of fun with the Atlanta class if you have more Matchbox or Skywave/Dragon kits, as it would be interesting with a late 50's modernisation swap out the twin 5 inch for the single 5 inch, add ASROC and MK32 Torpedo tubes updated bridge beef up the superstructure and Mack style funnels. Could possibly add Tartar missile in place of one of the aft guns. Would look the part with the likes of Albany, the Charles Adams and FRAM II destroyers  :thumbsup: Would look even better alongside an Angled deck Essex  :mellow:
