I so totally agree!
I also have all the Dragon Burke class lineup, but have looked the Hobby Boss offerings over online. You are vastly better off with Hobby Boss. They are more accurate and "refined." For Momsen in particular...the RHIB arrangement is different for her. They are stacked one above the other (vs. side by side on the same deck.) This stacked arrangement requires a taller davit. Hobby Boss provides that. Dragon does not...they give you the same shorter davit as the other versions. Hobby Boss also has a more correct helicopter hangar, more accurate anchors, a better TACAN, and raft cannister arrangement. Go with Hobby Boss.
Hello, Pat, I think the Hobby Boss's version of Arleigh Burke Class ships are better than Dragon's. I built all Flight I, IIA and IIA with minesweeper from Dragon's kits, and now I decided to replace them with Hobby Boss's. BTW, the Hobby Easy of Hong Kong has all Hobby Boss's DDG kits on sale.
Which one shall I buy?
Be aware if it matters that I want a waterline kit.
