A relatively quick build - just a couple of days. Another excellent kit from Flyhawk, but IMHO, not quite as good their previous USS Ward. The model is almost OOB, except for substitution of inclined ladders with handrails up to the bridge wings.





Still, another excellent kit from Flyhawk!

Very Nice! I'll have to get a Flyhawk and Niko kit sometime.

Biggles, a good neat sharp looking small ship! I have a bunch of (old) 1/700 DDs that are calling for a quick build someday.

G37 inspires me!

Great job on the 37 Bigs!! She turned out really well! I have the Lutzow kit with this included as well and was thinking it would build up this nice! Might have to dig this out son for a quick build myself...LOL!! Thanks for sharing!!

Splendid build Biggles2, great etch work, and love the weathering too.

Nice! They are great looking models, certainly better than that old Airfix 4-stacker I tried building as the Ward.

I love all that etch work, I envy anyone who can achieve such results at 1/700.

So did I until I tried it . Taxing on the eyes, but well worth the effort!
