The 178m-long USS Virginia (CGN-38) was a nuclear-powered guided missile cruiser of the US Navy that was commissioned in 1976. Its first taste of combat was in 1983 when the ship fired approximately 300 five-inch rounds into Lebanon. Its 500 crew members also provided assistance after the bombing of the Marine Barracks in Beirut. In 1990 the USS Virginia deployed to the eastern Mediterranean in support of Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm. During this conflict, the cruiser fired two Tomahawk missiles into Iraq, thereby achieving the longest combat firing of a Tomahawk up till that time. The 11,000-ton ship was eventually decommissioned in 1994.

A 1/700 scale replica of the USS Virginia has recently joined Cyber Hobby new lineup of model kits. This release is most significant as it is the series’ very first modern subject, which obviously means all the parts are brand new toolings. This impressive kit is finely detailed - for example, the superstructure bears fine detail such as hoses and ladders molded in place even though it is only in 1/700 scale. The bridge itself is a product of a three-directional slide mold, indicating a high level of engineering excellence. A generous collection of photo-etched parts like radar antennas and railings provides finesse. As a modern vessel, the kit incorporates a number of new moldings to represent contemporary weapon systems. Thus the radar dishes, 5-inch Mk-45 lightweight guns, Tomahawk armored box launchers and twin Mk-26 Standard missile launchers are all newly tooled items. To exhibit this accomplished ship, the modeler has the option of building a full-hull or waterline-hull version. For collectors seeking a modern warship, this Cyber Hobby USS Virginia offers something unique.
