So, closer inspection of this model has lead to some observations. First, the model is a little large for a light cruiser. It's almost as big as my full size cruisers. Second, where the middle attaches to the aft engine/bridge assembly is very thin. it tore while I was cleaning the model before priming, I was able to fix it with super glue but time will tell how well this will hold up. Still overall enjoy the model, but these are things a potential purchaser should keep in mind.
