This is my build of the Samek 1/700 scale USS Alaska. This is a very nice resin kit which built up into what I think is a good looking model. The build is pretty much out of the box, although I did replace the kit quad 40mm with the aftermarket guns from Niko, and the 20mm Oerlikons with photo-etch from Gold Medal Models. The rest of the PE is mix from the kit fret and assorted GMM frets. The rails are GMM ultrafine, and the crew are also from GMM. The camouflage is Measure 32-1D CB-1. Thanks to John Snyder for sending me drawings of this scheme.
