"Awesome kit"
This is the first smaller ship model i have done, i usually do Battleships/Carriers but have started to get to smaller ships/subs. This kit was excellent, there were many parts that had added detail i haven't seen in other ships before. The turret mounts were movable along with the gun itself, there were even rubber buffers to allow for seamless movement. This was a great, high quality model, thoroughly enjoyed it. The only downside is the paint scheme/colors. Something that is unusual from my experience is paint schemes that require mixing to get the color, add to it that the colors that needed to be mixed were somewhat harder to find, that was a roadblock and i had to pause this model until i got the required paint. So, if you get this kit and go by what the instructions call out for the paint scheme, make sure you have enough extra paint for mixing ahead of time. If you do your own scheme or you are proficient in mixing paints, you don't need to worry about it. Overall this kit was great and i recommend it

"Easy Build"
Built this one a few months ago...easy to build, went together well. Did NOT do the camo scheme, but went with all navy blue on hull and a haze gray on upper works.

"Fun build"

I like the detail, and the realism of the pieces. I suggest this kit to anyone who enjoys ships and small pieces.

"Nice kit. Usual Tamiya"
This is a very nice kit that goes together very well. Aftermarket extras do help but it's very nice out-of-box as well. Highly recommended.


  • Decal options:
  • Single sheet of decals with US Navy ensign and 4 sets of numbers for
  • DD's 445, 446, 447, and 448. All ships may be painted with the
  • same scheme but since US Navy camouflage practices changed during
  • WWII, check references to be sure of its accuracy for any
  • particular ship.
