Customer Reviews

Good model of a great shipGood model of a great ship. 17 battle stars in WWII,number 2 on the all time US Navy list. My only issue with this model is not the model but the add for the model, it claims the kit includes PE parts but it does not. Thats not Trumpeters fault its the sellers. 4Excellent depitction of an early WWII NEW ORLEANS class CAI have never been disappointed with Trumpeter offerings - this is no exception.The instructions are VERY clear and easy to follow. The stock kit is extremely well detailed - no need for aftermarket parts unless you really want to go crazy on details. Fit and finish is excellent - there was no call for putty, unless you slip with your x-acto knife.Only blemish in my opinion are the cranes for the aircraft. They are not very well thought out as only the main spar is included - either heat and roll sprue or use thread to depict the lines and blocks.If you are trying to decide between the 1942 or 1944 version, the only differences are increased 20mm and 40mm Anti Aircraft mountings. These are very tedious to assemble and paint. My suggestion is to go for the 1942 version and then look for a BALTIMORE CA for a later depiction of a CA. This kit would go well in an early battle group with either a LEXINGTON CV or YORKTOWN CV and NORTH CAROLINA BB. There are even kits for early DD's like the BENSON class for an early battle group.Highly recommended for even the lightly experienced modeler. 5Very pleased with the modelVery satisfied with the details it shows 5Good Kit and Fun BuildJust finished building this set and was very pleased. I was hoping to complement my collection which currently includes two 1/350 Tamiya models (the Destroyer Fletcher and the Battleship Yamato). Quality-wise, I'd say it is a small step below the Tamiya models and I had to use an exacto knife a few more times than I did when building the Yamato. The ability to make it full-hull or waterline is quite nice but in my kit, the two pieces didn't fit together perfectly. The model itself looks great and I'd definitely recommend it, particularly since it's the cheapest Heavy Cruiser kit I've seen. 4Five Starswould recommend 5Great Kit!Trumpeter does not disappoint with their 1/350 USS San Fransico! This kit is well engineered and overall fit is very good. The armament of the ship is well detailed is easy to assemble however many modelers will want to replace the quad 1.1 inch guns with photo etch. The 20mm mounts have the shields included and the 5 inch mounts look very good for plastic. One thing I like about the kit is that the part count isn't crazy like many other 1/350 ships and it is very easy to assemble. There is an option for full hull or waterline and the fit between the upper and lower hull is airtight. However, the catapults and cranes come up short and must be replaced with photo etch to make a respectable model. Also, the fit of some forward superstructure parts require lots of putty to fill. Luckily, large parts like the decks fit well and don't require modifications. The painting guide is practically useless as it provides colors that are completely wrong, just know that all vertical surfaces were painted 5-N navy blue and horizontal surfaces were painted 20-B deck blue. Railings must be purchased separatly and NO PHOTO ETCH IS INCLUDED in the kit even though the description says there is. Two seaplanes are included in the kit (SOCs) and are molded in clear plastic (urg). Decals include an Americns flag with 48 stars as historically accurate the the ships number, 38. Something to note about the kit is that in its 1942 configuration it can easily be modified to match her sister ships, Astoria (CA-34) or Quincy (CA-39). Vincennes (CA-44) would be a much harder task however. Overall highly recommended, but be prepared to use some putty and some sanding. Gold medal model photo etch set is recommended. 4Five StarsTrumpeter products consistently excellent 5NiceNice 5Just what he expectedThis was bought for my husband.. he hasn't put it together yet.. but is very excited and can't wait to start on it.. has opened it and likes what he sees.. 5
