Product: 1:700 US DD-797 Cushing Zerstörer WL

During the Second World War, the US Navy built a total of 175 units of the 2,000-ton Fletcher-class destroyers. The USS Cushing (DD-797) was not completed until 1944, but still took part in numerous important naval operations, such as the Battle of Leyte Gulf. Due to its late completion, the USS Cushing had some improvements compared to its sister ships: for example, reinforced anti-aircraft armament and the characteristic square bridge, which offered greater visibility. In addition to five 12.7 cm guns and a five-way 533-mm torpedo launcher, the destroyer was armed with five 40-mm (AA) twin anti-aircraft guns and seven 20-mm (AA) anti-aircraft guns. When the Japanese surrendered on September 2, 1945, the Cushing was anchored together with the battleship USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay. The TAMIYA model on a scale of 1:700 is characterized by high levels of detail and faithfulness to the original. The kit includes a decal sheet with ship numbers and the US flag.
