Features new boxart! 1/320 Scale. Highly detailed kit, Measures 16 inches long when complete. Decals included for Forrest Sherman, Turner Joy and Edson destroyers. Flag Sheet. Skill level 2 "The Destroyer will be there" said Admiral Nimitz about the fleet of the future. No other ship, he believed, had such an assured place in the Navy. If there is a challenge to be met at sea, the USS Forrest Sherman will be quick to respond to the urgent plea: "Send the Destroyers!"Debuting in 1957 during the week of Pres. Eisenhower's 2nd inauguration, Forrst Sherman slid into the water flaunting an all aluminum above-deck structure, including gun foundations. Increased freeboard (area between waterline and deck) keeps her high and dry. Her sleek efficient design makes her especially stable and easy to maintain. ALL GUN DESTROYER The last of the "gun only" destroyers, she carries and automatic rapid-fire gun mount forward and two aft. She is also armed with several anti-aircraft guns plus hedgehogs, depth charges and both anti-submarine and anti-surface torpedoes.In 1958 Forrest Sherman patrolled the eastern Mediterranean, then sailed to join the 7th Fleet in operations off Taiwan in support of the threatened islands of Quemoy and Matsu. Sailing eastward, she completed a cruise around the world.ROYAL ESCORTDuring the summer of 1959 Forrest Sherman joined a task force in the Great Lakes to celebrate the opening of the St. Lawrence Seaway. She served as escort to the Royal Yacht HMS Brittania carrying Pres. Eisenhower and Queen Elizabeth II to a Lake St. Louis naval review.The ship was named after Admiral Forrest Sherman who, during WW II, commanded the carrier Wasp and later became Chief of Naval Operations.

    1/320 USS Forrest Sherman

    When I was a kid I used to see this model in my grandpa's shelf, and building one now as an adult, brought me great satisfaction. The level of detail at this scale is awesome, specially in the bulkheads. My model didn't have any sink holes and had minimum flash, and the decals went down nicely. Great model to build out of the box or maybe add some aftermarket and create a real eye-opener.

    DD931 Forrest Sherman

    I was very glad to see a re-issue of this kit. I modified it to reflect changes to the weapons and electronics as they looked during the Vietnam War. I removed the depth charge racks and added radar antennas from a spare photo-etch set. I also replaced the molded rails with photo-etch from a generic set. I based my model on the USS Turner F. Joy as she looked in 1979 while stationed at 32nd Street Naval Station, San Diego.
