This set is a great value to the modeler for any of the Northampton Class Heavy Cruisers such as the Corsair Armada Chicago of the Classic Warships Portland. If you are doing an late war Indianapolis such as the Tamiya kit, I would recommend Tom's Modelworks #730 set specially designed for that kit.  For a retail price of $7.00 it is a great value for your treaty cruiser.
