"German Z Class Z37-39"
The German Z Class Z37-39 Tamiya Waterline kits (2 in the package) is an older kit, but holds up to the test of time with ease of build and a nice looking set of 2 ships when completed. They are waterline only so no options for full hull. I recommend this kit. This would also make a great starter kit for a young model builder, due to it's ease of build. Be careful of the tiny parts that are in the kit, there are a few that you will have to remove carefully. Happy Model Kit Building.

"Back to modeling."
This was my 2nd model to build after a 40 year pause, my aging eyes and hands prompted me to get a magnifier and tweezers. This has helped. I was very happy to get two models for the low price. The ships went together well, I had few problems. I built one in each version (early and late). There weren't too many parts and I was happy with the detail, I look for ease over detail. On a further note, I actually want to build a 1934a or 1936 Z type destroyer, these are type 1936a mob. Looking at the pieces, I'm quite sure I can rearrange them some and build a ship that looks like the earlier version. I don't know how exact it will be, but for me I think it will be close enough. So, I'm going buying this kit again and make some modifications to the build, so the final ships looks more like a type 1936 destroyer.

"2 for 1"
This kit is exactly what I expected when I ordered it. I has 2 identical plastic models sheets. Instructions tell you how to build either the Z37 or Z39 variation of the model, one having more big guns the other having extra machine gun turrets. I built one of each. The assembly process took about 2 hours per model (unpainted and not totally perfect). These go nicely with the other 1/700 waterline models I own. They are 7.5 long x .75 wide finished

"Great BuY. must get"
Rhodesian Infantry (USA)
This kit was great.I got two German ww2 destroyers for the price of one. They are highly detailed and amazing. 2 different versions and both fit nicely in a small model car display case. A must get.
