"Another fine kit"
ltmy
Another very fine kit from Trumperter, the deck detail was very good for being such a small ship. Hard to believe the Fletchers were our top of the line destroyers in WWII. Very easy to work with and with the add on of a photo etch kit yoou can add as much or as little detail as you wish

"Mildly disappointed with this kit."
freytagd5271
This is my first Trumpeter kit, and after hearing good things from others about the quality of Trumpeter, I'm a little bit disappointed with this one. It's dated 2005, so it's not a particularly old production run but there are some really awful tooling marks on some of the decks and some fit issues that I would expect from the cheap, old Revell kits. Don't quite understand the logic behind making the 5-inch gun houses in 3 pieces; other than providing more pieces to glue together, what's the point of having to assemble the sides of the houses? Especially when they don't fit/line up well. The same can be said for the superstructure assemblies; all bulkheads are separate pieces so you need to try to glue them all together and on the deck at the same time if you don't want to run into a misalignment problem if you do it in a few stages; it's like trying to make a square out of 4 playing cards and not have any one leaning at all. A simple notch or two here and there would certainly have helped. The 20mm mounts are a bit chunky and appear to be too large, although that's fairly common with smaller ship kits. As for decals and flags, you get the hull numbers, the clovers, the Union Jack and the famous Trumpeter 50-star WWII US Flag. So if you are really looking for accuracy you'll need to find the 48-star flag yourself. Also would have been nice to have some signal flags to run up the halyard. All that said, this kit does have some redeeming qualities. There isn't much flash at all. The instructions are clear and parts are included to build Sullivans in either her '43 or '45 configuration. There is also some really nice detail with this kit. Despite the gripe with the 5-inch mounts, they at least have some detail and aren't a one size fits all as a few of them have the blast hood atop the housing. Anti-skid walkways are clear and not too thick. Depth charge rack are nice (although in 2 halves...why??), you can even see where the depth crank goes! The torpedo mounts, k-gun racks and throwers, life rafts and searchlights all have some nice detail. Even the molded hatches on the bulkheads are fairly decent. I bought the Tom's PE set to give the kit a boost where needed. Overall, I think there's more good than bad with this kit and anyone looking to build one of the fine Fletcher class destroyers would find this one suitable.

 
"REALISTIC WWII NAVAL VESSEL"

Very good detail, easy to follow instructions and with a little bit of patience and imagination the finished model is superb
