Product Description



ABOUT THE KIT      

    SUMNER CLASS DESTROYERS WERE BUILT IN USA DURING A PERIOD OF
1943 -  1945 . THESE SHIPS REPRESENTED FURTHER DEVELOPMENT OF FLETCHER CLASS DESTROYERS.

    DESIGNERS WERE INCREASING FIREPOWER AT THE COST OF DECREASING SPEED . AT A LATER STAGE , HULL WAS MADE LONGER , AND THIS NEW PROJECT WAS CALLED GEARING CLASS.

    ALL THESE MODIFICATIONS WERE BEING INTRODUCED WITHOUT SLOWING DOWN WAR TIME PRODUCTION OF SHIPS.
    POST WAR PERIOD SAW A LONG SERVICE OF DESTROYERS OF THIS CLASS IN US AND OTHER NAVIES.
    DESTROYERS OF  FLETCHER- SUMNER- GEARING CLASSES WERE CONSIDERED BEST WWII PERIOD DESTROYERS IN THE WORLD.
    YOU WILL HAVE NO DIFFICULTY TO FIND A LOT OF INFORMATION ON THEM IN INTERNET AND BOOKS.

     THIS KIT ALLOWS YOU TO BUILD MODEL OF DD- 727 USS DE HAVEN IN CAMOUFLAGE PATTERN , OR DD- 723 USS WALKE IN TWO COLOR PAINT SCHEME IN 1:192 SCALE.

     SOME 70 DESTROYERS OF THIS CLASS WERE BUILT ALTOGETHER , AND THEY MIGHT HAVE HAD VARIOUS DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THEM , ACCORDING TO DIFFERENT SHIPYARDS , AND ON GOING MODERNIZATIONS AND CONVERSIONS.  WITH SOME MODELING EXPERIENCE AND ANALYSIS YOU MAY BE ABLE TO BUILD OTHER VERSIONS OF THIS CLASS BASED ON THIS KIT.

     THIS KIT IS DEVELOPED FOR EXPERIENCED MODELER , AND ALLOWS TO ACHIEVE MUSEUM QUALITY MODEL THANKS TO SPECIFIC TECHNICAL SOLUTIONS INBUILT IN THIS KIT.

     PHOTO ETCHED PARTS  CAN BE ASSEMBLED ON SUPER GLUE. HULL IS SUPPLIED IN ASSEMBLED FORM , REQUIRING ONLY SECONDARY ADJUSTMENTS.

     SUPERSTRUCTURES ARE SUPPLIED AS SEPARATE ASSEMBLY UNITS , WITH CONNECTION ON SCREWS , WHICH ALLOWS TO PUT THEM ON MODEL , ADJUST AND REMOVE MANY TIMES DURING CONSTRUCTION , AS WELL AS SEPARATELY PAINT THEM .

     SUPERSTRUCTURES ALSO HAVE REMOVABLE DECK COVERS MADE OF PHOTO ETCHING , CONVENIENT FOR SEPARATE COLOR PAINTING AND DECAL APPLICATION.

     RAILINGS ARE SUPPLIED IN FORM OF PHOTO ETCHED STANCHIONS , WHICH AFTER PAINTING CAN BE FIT ON DECKS AND RAILING THREAD PASSED THROUGH THEM SIMULATING REAL SHIP RAILINGS CONSTRUCTION. SUCH TECHNIQUE BESIDES BEING CONVENIENT , IMPROVES OVERALL IMPRESSION OF THE MODEL.

    SMALL FITTINGS ARE CAST IN BRASS , WHICH IS HIGHER GRADE QUALITY THAN PEWTER CASTINGS.
     ASSEMBLY REQUIRES A  SET OF TOOLS THAT USUALLY EVERY MODELER ALREADY HAS.
     PREFERABLY A GOOD MINI MOTO OR ROTARY TOOL AND AN AIRBRUSH TOP THE TOOLS ASSORTMENT.
     PAINT WORKS CALL FOR AN ASSORTMENT OF GOOD MASKING TAPES.
     THIN GRADE , PENETRATING SUPER GLUE SHOULD BE A GREAT ASSET AMONG OTHER TYPES OF GLUES AT HAND.
                                                                                                                                        
     FOR THE CONVENIENCE OF WORK , IT IS GOOD TO CONSTRUCT ANY KIND OF TEMPORARY CRADLE FOR SHIP TO SIT ON DURING ASSEMBLY.

     MANY PARTS AND FITTINGS HAVE PINS WHICH ARE GREAT FOR HOLDING PARTS DURING VARIOUS WORKS AND FOR SECURE FITTING THEM ON MODEL.

     WIRE PINS CAN BE FIT FOR SAME PURPOSES INTO RESIN PARTS TOO.

     TO GUIDE AND FACILITATE ASSEMBLY , WE ENCLOSE A  LOT OF PHOTOS AND ASSEMBLY DIAGRAMS IN PDF FORMAT , WHICH YOU CAN PRINT OUT IN 1:1 SCALE WITHOUT ANY SPECIAL SOFTWARE, ALSO INTERACTIVE PHOTO CATALOG OF PARTS FOR EASY NAVIGATION .
