"DD-797, a great addition to Tamiya's line of U.S. ships"
cdnmodeller (Edmonton, AB)
I have just finished building this kit & found it quite straightforward, much like the DD-445 'Fletcher' kit released earlier. It has a good number of tiny parts such as 20-mm antiaircraft guns which can be difficult to place, even using tweezers. Having said that, I managed to complete the kit in about 3 days and am impressed with the result. I actually found it to be a bit of an improvement on the DD-445 kit. I would like to see Tamiya create more of the U.S. destroyer lines from World War 2 - their kits are always great fun to build.

"Not Disappointing"
I bought this ship in a store a few years back, and just completed this recently. I was very pleased! It flew together in a matter of hours, and despite many small pieces it turned out great. I am very new to the hobby, so I thought it was great. Experienced hobbyists might find it too easy, but I don't know. The only downfall I saw was that there is a lack of detail on the deck itself. The open parts of the deck are rather bland, and some railings or rigging might have been nice. Also, there is a wall portion that needs to be cut off the main deck, and it's not easy to do; it also leaves 'scarring' on the deck. However, as I said, I am not very good at modelling and so that might be my own fault. Overall, I love it. It's not expensive and looks beautiful on display.

"Excellent ship"

At first I was worried about the size of the ship but it has VERY good details for 1:700. I brush painted it like I do all my models (I can’t afford an airbrush😂) and it turned out well. It is well worth the price. I would recommend it to anyone who is starting a 1:700 ship collection. It is my 3’d ship of this scale. (Uss New York LPD 21 and uss Greenville.) It is about 6 inches long.

"Great destoroyah"
This is a typical great quality Tamiya waterline series destroyer. Small, and almost identical to the Cushing. No option for full hull, in case you want that.
