  1. James Martin

    I love building these models,but missing some parts was heart broken at the missing parts.

     全長43cm X 全幅5.5cm(飾り台含まず)X 全高11cm(飾り台含む)

    The there is nothing negative to say about this model. I’m going to do a diarama stand to go with it to give to an elderly Navy vet.

    I had to try this model for a couple reasons…….cheaper…….similar to the ship I served on prior to remodel to guided missile cruiser. However, I would not recommend purchase of this item for the following reasons, first missing parts ( I guess one could tell people that the missing gun mount was removed for maintenance), second the hull parts did not match up leaving gaps, third the parts were not cleanly separated from the molds with not marks as to where they should be trimmed. But if one wants a model that with some work might satisfy this could fit the billet. I find Tamiya and Hasagawa models done with more detail and of course smaller and harder to attach parts , specially for older fat fingers. Good luck whichever model you choose, it can be fun even with missing parts.

    Not a good product for those looking for accuracy and details. Good for beginners.

  6. Don B.

    Cons= tons of flash, vague detail, poorly fitting parts, no hull detail, and soft plastic.
    Pros= cool box art
    Summary = not recommended. Spend a bit more money and get a far better, but smaller scale Trumpeter kit.

    Being a retired Navy Gunnersmate I do appreciate United States Naval history! Box art is a plus. This kit was boxed in Amazon box yet still is damaged! Cool kit! Nice addition to my collection! Go Navy!

    After my uncle found my dad a Revell model of the USS Helena, I was asked by my dad if I would build it for him. I did, and I was so disappointed with that model that I searched the internet until I found out that the Pittsburgh and the Helena were sister ships.
    Then I found this model on Amazon and I immediately purchased it. When I received the model kit in the mail, I opened it and I did a thorough inventory of the kit. This kit was absolutely complete and nothing was missing.

    Very good value for money and way to relax
