Laid down on 26 May 1941 at Bethlehem Steel Company's Fore River Shipyard in Quincy, Massachusetts, she was launched on 28 July 1942, sponsored by the wife of Mayor of Baltimore Howard W. Jackson. The cruiser was commissioned on 15 April 1943 under the command of Captain Walter C. Calhoun.

Baltimore was 664 feet (202.4 m) long at the waterline and 673 ft 5 in (205.26 m) long overall. She had a beam of 70 ft 10 in (21.59 m) and a draft of 24 ft (7.3 m). She displaced 14,472 long tons (14,704 t) at standard displacement and 17,031 long tons (17,304 t) at full combat load. The ship had a crew of 1,142 officers and enlisted men.

I build this ship using the MS32 scheme before, indeed most of her picture uses this scheme. According to www.usndazzle.com the colors appear to be unspecified.

Notes:

  • This project built using edited default texture to make the color more accurate
  • Railings are not present because of inconsistency (e.g cannot put iron bars on slabs)
  • 1st 5' gun barrel on the starboard side are not properly colored
