OK a tad smaller than 1/144 but still not too far out....

Just bought this for a quite reasonable £20.00. Works pretty well with the Revell 1/131 Defiance patrol boat and the larger 1/144 Fletcher class destroyers etc

Makes for an interesting subject.....

Might try to update/detail it with a more modern bridge window design, radar etc, maybe replace some of the launchers with RAMs etc...

Nice find as the box art looks fab, but the kit looks a bit dull with the flat plastic expanse at the front.... ;-)

some fletcher class accessories would revolutionise the railings, and perhaps replace the AAA and mid turret... but what to do with the foredeck?

Yes I agree it looks a bit basic from the side view. But the whole point of the design was in essence an early version of an arsenal ship. 8 twin launchers for bombardment misiles but given they dont feature on the launcher not much to do about it.
