USS Mobile Bay (CG-53) U.S. Navy Ticonderoga Class guided missile cruiser

1:700 Scale.  Length: 9.75"

USS Mobile Bay (CG-53) is a Ticonderoga class guided-missile cruiser that is named after the Battle of Mobile Bay during the American Civil War in 1864. Her keel was laid in June 1984 and launched in August of 1985 and, after sea-trials, Mobile Bay was commissioned on February 21 1987. Initially her homeport was Mayport, Florida but in June 1990 was relocated to Yokosuka Japan with deployment to support Operation Desert Shield and Operation Desert Storm. While there the ship launched 22 Tomahawk missiles and help destroy thirty eight Iraqi naval vessels.

The Ticonderoga Class ship was first conceived as a low cost, large production number vessel with a hull based on the Spruance Class Destroyer, but was later redesigned as a cruiser. Over time the Ticonderoga Class evolved in to one of the most advanced ships in the United States Navy inventory. The Ticonderoga Class was the first combat surface ship to be equipped with the AEGIS weapon system that can detect threats 200 miles away and provide defense against the threat. Originally there were 27 ships built but 5 have been retired.

Hobby Master offers a wide selection of high quality, pre-assembled, diecast model ships. Each model is crafted to a high level of accuracy using specifications of the original vessel. They are constructed with precision-made diecast metal and some plastic components.

This model of the USS Mobile Bay features:

  • Die-cast metal hull
  • Historically accurate structural details
  • Rotatable deck guns
  • Display stand
  • Window box

  • Not suitable for children under the age of 14
