Product Description
Catalog (click here)

Scale 1/490

Recommended for: 
Scale: Revell boxart states the kits' scale to be 1/490.  When compared to Navy plans, the models' true scale is close to 1/483.  This superstructure is perfectly matched to your Revell kit.

These 3D-printed parts are intended to help you convert your World War Two-era Baltimore class heavy cruiser model kit to USS Saint Paul CA-73 as she appeared during the Vietnam War.  USS Saint Paul was the most decorated ship of the Baltimore class.

This is not a complete conversion kit.  These parts are designed to represent only the upper, forward superstructure of the ship.  These parts include the enclosed navigation bridge, enclosed flag bridge, their associated decks, the open air defense platform, and the enlarged foremast. Some scratch-building will be necessary to complete the conversion.  Please use your favorite photo-etch for any radar antenna and TACON beacon supporting structure.  Photo-etch is not included.  

Some adjustment of the plastic kit parts may be necessary for best fit.

Overall dimensions of this design are based on official US Navy drawings adjusted to match photographs of the real ship.  Some features have been designed thicker than scale to facilitate 3D-printing requirements.

Assembly instructions are not provided with this product when shipped to you.  Please study the images shown in the carousel on this webpage to learn where each part goes, as well as online references such as photographs of 
USS Saint Paul CA-73 found on NavSource (click here).

This model includes a set of directors needed to complete the conversion to the ship's 1968 appearance.  There are enough directors for both the forward and the aft superstructure (the aft superstructure is not included).  Please study the photos in the carousel on this webpage to learn where each director and antenna should be located.  The set includes:
  • two Mk.34 Directors
  • two Mk.13 airfoil-shaped radar antennas
  • two Mk.37 Directors
  • four Mk.56 Directors
  • one AN/URN-3 TACAN Beacon
