Prior to reading this review, I took a leap of faith and ordered this kit to augment my Samek HMS Exeter. I just received it and I must say that upon opening the box I was pleasantly surprised with the level of detail and fineness of the hull Aoshima produced. Of note, the bow knuckle is lovely. What Rich posted is correct and it should build into a nice model.
Also, that little Yamishta Hobby Japanese destroyer is a gem.
Just some initial impressions...
