- Reproduce a ship that made up the world's first nuclear-powered ship fleet

[About the actual ship]
- USS Long Beach was commissioned in September 1961 as the first nuclear-powered missile cruiser designed after World War II.
- Together with the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Enterprise (CVN-65) and the missile cruiser USS Bainbridge (CGN-25), she formed the 1st Nuclear Task Force, the world's first nuclear-powered ship combat unit.
- It had a displacement of 14,200 tons, a total length of 219.9 m, and was equipped with two Westinghouse nuclear reactors.
- It has a huge bridge equipped with a phased array radar and is equipped with two 5-inch .38 caliber guns in the center of the hull.
- After several renovations, it has been equipped with powerful armaments such as Tomahawk missiles, Phalanx CIWS, and Harpoon missile launchers.
- It is also engraved in history as the first combat ship to use missiles as its main armament.
- He lived a long active duty life from the Vietnam War to the Gulf War, and retired in 1995.

[About the model]
- A plastic model assembly kit that reproduces the world's first nuclear-powered combat ship USS Long Beach, designed and built after the war, on a 1/700 scale.
- Modeled after renovation around 1980 of Long Beach, which was built as a later [cruiser hull] and is also known as the one and only cruiser without a ship of the same type.
- Differences from Long Beach in the 1960s are also reproduced in detail, such as removing the Talos missile launcher and equipping it with a Harpoon missile launcher instead.
- The kit consists of separate parts for the bottom of the ship, and can be assembled by selecting either a full-hull type or an offshore model type.
- The upper structure of the deck is precisely reproduced with fine details, including the distinctive box-shaped bridge shape.
- The delicate expression of the antenna and mast also enhances the finish.

- Accurately recreates the Long Beach, the last long-hull cruiser
- Precise reproduction of the unique box-shaped bridge
- 38 caliber 5-inch gun with great detail
- Detailed parts such as antennas and masts

Cruiser Guided Nuclear. The kit was brilliant. Only grip would be the slightly warped hull. 28 PE parts on a tiny sheet. Good decals. Some unused decals & plastic parts. Instructions were confusing, showing one version of the ship in assembly and another in marking/painting guide. I'd build it again.
