Description

Hobby Master 1:700 Sea Power Series Diecast Model

USS Princeton (CG-59) U.S. Navy Ticonderoga Class Guided Missile Cruiser

1:700 Scale.  Length: 9.75"



The USS Princeton (CG-59) guided missile cruiser was launched on September 25, 1987 and commissioned on February 11, 1989. CG-59 was the sixth ship to bear the name Princeton to commemorate the 1777 battle at Princeton, New Jersey during the Revolutionary War. Princeton was based with the Atlantic Fleet until February 1989 when she joined the Pacific Fleet. In late 1990 CG-59 began to support Operations Desert Shield and Storm until June 1991. In February 1991 the USS Princeton was heavily damaged by two mines but was repaired in 5 weeks and then resumed normal operations.

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 Princeton 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
