I'm attracted to the idea of buying this kit and backdating it to USN service but as you can see from the link it's very different weapon and radar fit out. Also the aft lattice mast differs and I'd need to change that too.
Drama, drama, drama, from the last Orange Hobby kit I did which was a KNOX class and the upper and lower hull did not match and I don't want a repeat of that.
Is this the only FRAM 1 kit out there for sale presently? I've thought about conversion options from Tamiya's FLETCHER, or Dragon's GEARING kits.
