Starfighter Decals has released this useful decal set for modelers of US Navy cold war (1955-1994) cruisers. This set is designed for the 1/500 scale cruisers produced by Revell, Monogram, and Renwall. These include the Boston-class CAGs, Monogram CGs, and Renwall's CLG/DLG kits.
This set provides generic hull numbers, deck markings including gun warning zones, missile warning zones, helipad markings, etc. It also includes a variety of ship names for the stern including those mentioned above in the CAG, CG, CLG, DLG, and the Cleveland-class CAs.
This set will provide a nice alternative (or replacement) of the kits' decals as well as many options for a specific hull of interest.
You can purchase these decals directly from Starfighter Decals on their website.
My sincere thanks to Starfighter Decals for this review sample!
