I started to collect 1/700 scale models since the early 1970's. I have built over 170 1/700 scale ships, mainly from plastic model kits. However, some of them are scratch-built or converted from available kits. Last year I finished the USS Boston (CAG 1) by converting from the Trumpeter 1/700 Baltimore kit. I used some of the guns, part of the main deck and the hull. The rest are scratch-built from styrene sheets. Attached is a set of photos of the model.
