    Hi Rich.

    The only models I am aware of are resin models of the Indianapolis class Heavy Cruiser (CA-xx) of WW2. It has been awhile since I looked though. You might try looking at the Steel Navy site (don't have the link offhand) as that is where I got my info.

    btw my father is a proud plankholder of the USS Columbus, CA-12, well before she was converted into a Guided Missle Cruiser. If you find a model of her in her CA-12 configuration, please let me know as I would love to make one for him.

    Small World - I served on the USS Columbus (CG-12) in 1966 - 1967.

    Was at Norfolk at the USCG Base and saw her being turned into scrap!

    She was about 3 or 4 docks down from the CG base.

    I'll check the site and THANKS!
