Hi All,

While waiting for things to dry on my Z-31 build, I thought I would start on a project I have been wanting to do for a long time the U.S.S. Virginia CGN-38.

Kit: Dragon 1/700 U.S.S. Virginia CGN-38 #.7090
PE: FlyHawk #FH710002
Brass Barrels: ABER

Wow, now it's one of the real 'cold warriors' - not one of the most beautiful ships under the sun I have to say, but certainly an interesting topic and pretty seldom seen here!

I'm in and looking forward to your build!

Cheers,
Jan

Hi All,

I do not build modern era ships, this is my first one.

Want color designations are used for the hull and deck?



Hallo Jan,

Thank you, I found the 1/350 RR cars

Hi All,
Here is the PE for the Virginia. Four are from FlyHawk and the small fret came with the kit.
BTW, there are more FlyHawk PE parts than there are kit parts.
I used my spray and bake method on the PE.
