Navis Neptun 2304 USS Northampton, CC1, Gunnery Trials Ship, 1964 1/1250
NEW for 2008! After WW2, the USA had surplus hulls that had seen little use. Over the next 20 years, many were converted to test new weapons systems, in the case of Northampton, fully automatic guns.
All the post-war Neptun models are based on modified WW2 designed ships, in this case an improved Baltimore Heavy CruiserÂ design.
