My father served as a radar man during Vietman and would love to build his ship for him. I have searched and searched but nothing exists.

I don't know how accurate this is or if you're "up" for a kit search, but Renwal did a kit of the Galveston, which was a sister ship. Try this link for more info.

IIRC, USS Galveston was -pretty- close to the Oklahoma City. With the poor accuracy/detail of the kit, much scratch build will be necessary to really update and improve it, anyway.

 

You also have the option of taking a USS Miami, WWII era, and doing a -major- reconstruction. The hulls are identical, and they were near sisters in WWII.
