Nice little ship to add to collection of WW 2 ships
June 12, 2016
Just finished this model and enjoyed the build. No real problems and only compliant I have is that the cargo booms are thin, therefore a bit delicate as I ended up repairing one of booms twice. I altered a bit from the color guide that Trumpeter included with the ship, as I try to follow as closely as possible the information available from the website for USN Camo measures, and also changed the main 5-inch gun at the fantail to a 3.5 inch and changed the forward gun to a twin 40 mm mount, both from SkyWave's USN equipment set. I recommend that modelers that are a little more advanced than Novices build any of the Trumpeter models as sometimes the instructions are a little difficult.
