USS Fletcher DD445 Destroyer Waterline

One of the most famous and successful destroyer classes ever built was the U.S. Navy's Fletcher class that appeared during the World War period. A total of 175 sister ships proved to be the largest number for a destroyer class in the U.S. Navy inventory during the era. They were completed in two and a half years, showing a stunning example of wartime mass production. Development of the Fletcher class vessels began in mid October 1939, when the U.S. Navy General Board stated the initial characteristics requirements for their new destroyers. The Navy needed a larger and more versatile, multipurpose destroyers, to replace the then principle Benson/Livermore tyoe ships, which were the final development of the pre-war destroyer design restricted by the London Treaty.

"Very Good kit"
A great kit but only has one problem. The 5 inch guns are under-scale but still a great kit.

This model has some small parts and some care must be use went remove from the stem the parts fit well the decals are two ships and is shows the ship in it early cofig. The inst are good and color chart is good to a good model for the first timer.

"Some small parts hard to handle, otherwise an excellent kit"

I had been looking for U.S. destroyer model kits for some time & was thrilled when I found this one. Although it has some incredibly tiny parts which were difficult to handle for some with large fingers like me, I was still impressed with the end result of this kit. I have actually built more than 1 of this kit as I have been trying to create a group of destroyers of sufficient size.

Thhis is a great waterline destroyer form Tamiya. Very similar to the USS Cushing model by Tamiya. No full hull, butgreat quality model. Nice detail.
