Gorgeous Fargo, Donny. All that PE on the masts will no doubt make them just spectacular. I already noticed the bridge windows - are they PE, or how was that executed?
I'm looking at the twin-3" guns, and not seeing any more detail (in fact, even less) than on my little 1:550-scale ones. How do they look up close, in person? I guess I can't really criticize this (or any) kit, until I build my own Cold War USN ship, with those included.
Come to think of it, I have yet to build (in adult life) any kind of USN cruiser! But when I do, rest assured - even if it means grafting a hull-bottom (which it probably will) onto one of the old Rev-Wal classics - it will be a full-hulled beauty - just like yours, here. Great job - keep us posted, buddy!
