"ww2 Fletcher class"

Said it before in reviews, but Tamiya always seems to make a great product for a very fair price. There is a lot of detail in this set given the very low price. I just had to have this model being a fan of the Battle of Leyte Gulf were these tin cans made such a showing. It is not very large which I consider a plus since it makes it both easier to find a place to keep it and it makes painting a little easier. Would recommend this and other models by Tamiya.

"fun build"
wayne (Birmingham AL)
This was my first model ship. I have always kinda stayed away from them due to the crazy camo schemes. this kit went together like a dream and as it wasn't that expensive I figured what better to learn on. I did, I learned a lot. it does have some very small parts, but if that doesn't bother you you'll enjoy this kit

 
"Tamiya DD445 - Excellent first 1/350 build"
hami3418
I have been a 1/700 fan for a while but picked this kit up to give 1/350 a try. I thoroughly enjoyed working in this scale and the end result is really nice. I added the PE set from Toms Model Works and it made the difference. Be careful with the railings ... the PE set gives no extra for errors. Also recommend doing some research on the USN paint measures. I question the accuracy of some of Tamiya's color recommendations for this build ... especially the deck blue. I'll be building more in this scale. Then quality of this kit is typical of what you expectfrom Tamiya.

 
"Awesome kit"
masterchief191
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

Markings

  • 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.
