Dragon's 1/350 Ticonderoga and later USS Mobile Bay
Posted by dirkpitt77 on Wednesday, August 15, 2007 12:02 PM

   Hey guys,

     Anybody know how good these kits are?  I just picked them up at a clearance sale.

     Also, are there any aftermarket goodies for them, photoetch and such?  Where can I find some good photo resources for them?

 

   Thanks,

                       Chris

Probably the most complete set of PE for the Ticonderoga-class is from White Ensign

Another excellent set is from Gold Medal Models

Flagship Models also makes a set

As far as photo resources look at Navsource and the Photo Gallery at Navy.mil

Matter-of-fact, there is a photo of the USS Princeton (CG-59) near the top of today's postings
