Completed a couple months ago.  Second ever surface ship. I got some great advise in another thread, so thanks again.  I'm pretty happy with it as it is and afraid to try weathering it.

very clean build. i always liked the Ticonderoga class.  thought they were well proportioned, and when i saw pics of one in the brownsville scrap yard and it was sad. this kit is in the stash lurking someplace and your pics are good motivation. 

 

question- what grey did you use for your main paint?

Hi there,  Thanks!  All tamiya paints.  XF19 for the vertical surfaces, (light gray) and xf54 for the horizontal surfaces/decks, (darker gray)

Thanks for all the comments.  I was a bit nervous to post as a lot of the builds I've seen here just blow me away.  I do have a tamiya enterprise and trumpy nimitz in stash but first gaining experience and practice before I tackle such big kits.  Currently working on a Oliver Hazard Perry FFG and will likely do my Iwo Jima next. Smile  I'm really enjoying all the research and exploring of the different methods to plan build strategies.
