Throughout a long and decorated career, the USS Springfield served with distinction as a Cleveland-Class light cruiser and a Providence-Class guided missile cruiser in two different classes. Her wartime service during WWII consisted of shore bombardment and anti-aircraft picket roles in the Pacific. From 1957-1960 the vessel was converted to a guided missile cruiser. In this role, she served in the Mediterranean as a fleet flagship. In 1974 Springfield was retired and scrapped. Kit features deck guns, display stand, and Terrier guided missiles.

It is good to see those old Renwal kits again, even if they are a bit dated by modern standards!

Who else is really doing Cold War ships? You want to do the era (in plastic) you have to seek out these venerable kits.

Comsixthflt Flag ship spent most of her time anchored in an around France. First saw her in 1965 on my first Med cruise. Had a great band aboard and they played for us when the Tanker I was on re-fueled her. Used to carry Sixthflt Balloon and kite pool. (Balloons and paper kites that said U.S. Sixth Fleet Power for Peace on them) As well as the Sizth fleet wine mess items!!
