The Des Moines Class is already out now, via the USS Salem model from Blue Ridge & VeryFire
The kit should cover all 3 Salem/Des Moines class cruisers from their as-built configuration and most likely end of service life for the Des Moines and Salem. I hope that Blue Ridge & VeryFire will also do the USS Newport News in her Vietnam era configuration, with the expanded superstructure, and reduction of her 3 inch AA mounts.
I'm looking forward to the Cleveland and the potential future releases of the Baltimore and Atlanta classes.
Love these beautiful cruisers!
