A Quick Look at Iron Shipwrights' - Commander Series
USS Decatur - DD-341
These are pictures of the USS Bainbridle (top) and USS Ward (bottom). Not the USS Decatur, but they are of the same Wickes class and can be also be constructed from this kit. Thanks to Steelnavy.com for the images. They also have a nice out of the box review of the kit.


Kit Summary
Catalog Number: CSM4074
Resin Quality: B
Photo Etch Quality: A+
Instructions Quality: C+

Remarks: This is a nice ship model. You are going to have the expected resin to clean up. The hull is nicely detailed; the resin is so thin as to be translucent in places. My only negative comment here is the deck has a few "pebbly" areas that will need cleaning up. The resin detail parts are finely cast and also appear to be translucent in areas. The photo-etch looks great too. The instructions are hand drawn. Additional references will be neccesary to complete an accurate model

I'm sorry, but since the review has been published that product appears to have gone out of production.
