This subject - the Gearing/Sumners (about which I must admit, I hardly know the difference), is another on my "to build" list, particularly as escort(s) to my Cold War carriers. I've even gone so far as to master a 500-ish scale full-hull for it, plus develop all the Twin-5in-, Quad-40mm- and Twin-3in/50cal guns, and Mk37 director needed to nicely detail it out. And then (perhaps due exactly to all that effort), lost steam on the project. But your A.M.Sumner is a breath of inspiration, and new life, buddy.
Also very interesting about the Albatross kit - is that resin? And do you have any of its spare detail-parts to send me? I'd be very interested in those - particularly given they're "pretty decent", as you say!
Again, Great submission to ModelFleet - much appreciated, Donny!
