"A Poor Representation of a Square Bridge Fletcher Class Destroyer Out of the Box"
pkill100@yahoo.com
I was disappointed with this kit. It reminded me of models that I used to build in the 1960s despite the fact it was released in 2005. Many of the parts do not fit together very well and there are missing guide pins. The Deck non-skid is molded to the decks and is too thick and is a challenge to remove. Some parts have mold marks on them that need to be addressed. Many of the detail parts such as the 40mm gun Mk-51 directors and radars are poorly rendered. To build a proper Fletcher this kit needs add on detail parts. I used various parts from Gold Medal Model's Fletcher detail photo-etched brass set, Infini Model's Fletcher mast detail set and Black Cat model's 3D printed mid war Fletcher detail set. I would only recommend this kit for somebody who is starting out in our hobby or for an experienced modeler who is prepared to heavily modify the kit.

"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

 
"REALISTIC WWII NAVAL VESSEL"
ercilk
Very good detail, easy to follow instructions and with a little bit of patience and imagination the finished model is superb

 
"really disappointed"
thebutlersellsit
compared to Revell instructions these instruction were lack luster and bit confusing. i saw a 43 and 45 w Japanese symbol and didnt quite understand till i did bow small guns in both 1943 and 1945 configs and had to pull the 45 config off its housing. my ship ended up being a mash of 43 and 45. also a lot of bad molding. in one of torp racks was trying to cut plastic between when i snapped one off. so i made it look like it was firing a torp. it was a hard model because of directions, and size of the ship and parts and will take responsibility for what's my fault. but wouldn't recommend it to anyone however unless Revell came out w a 350 scale model for the Sullivan's.
