  1. C. Nathan Bartlett

    Cool little kit.

  2. Mikel Garau Rosselló

    Pequeña escala y por tanto poco detalle pero correcto a su tamaño y permite modificaciones adecuadas. En general buen producto para su precio.

  3. Edward Renouard, III

    Box was crash and the hull had a long cracked in it,

    The HMAS Vampire, ya gotta love that name, showed up in my mailbox yesterday, ahead of the scheduled delivery date, BTW. Way to go, NINJA HANZOU! Comparing her to the other 700th scale ships I’ve worked on over the past several years (German battleships, Titanic, US Navy ships I served on, including the Eisenhower), she sure is a tiny little rascal, but building her should be fun, especially since she’s a Tamiya kit. I’m really looking forward to getting started on her.

    I checked out the parts and they looked clean and well molded with no flash. Tamiya included two sets of decals, one for the Australian Navy ship and one for the British, where she originally came from before being transferred to Australia. There is no PE included with the kit, so if you want to add handrails you’ll have to go with an aftermarket supplier for those. This model is of HMAS Vampire D68, that was sunk during the war, not the later version that now serves as a museum ship.

    This was my first attempt at 1:700 scale as I have always done the larger scale models. Won’t do this size again. It went together well with the Tamiya extra thin cement. Used the tweezers, definitely, but if you have larger fingers this model is definitely challenging. I used two of the decals and put the Australian flag on the stern. I limited the painting. Also used a flashlight to see how to fit some of the parts even though I had an overhead light at the table. I glued the finished model to part of the box. I would recommend this to only experienced modelers due to it’s size, definitely not for a child.

    Great little kit of interesting obscure topic. Great edition to the waterline fleet.

  7. George H.

    Excellent detail. Good value for money.

    Lo compré para modificarlo hacia el Destructor español Almirane Miranda. Pues los dos son casi idénticos, tan sólo varía la posición de los botres salvavidas.

    nice kit, flash free, good parts fit, whilst not needed by me the system of poly tubes used to make guns & tt tube rotate wooks very well

    Great little model, however it was a lot smaller than I expected and some of the parts really are tiny! It goes together well and looks good when made.
