|The new Trumpeter 1/350 Sovremenny Class destroyer is proving to be a favorite among ship modelers. It builds nicely out of the box, but any kit can use some extra detailing. This Gold Medal Models set is just what you need to finish out your ship as accurately as possible.|
|The fret is relief etched to help define the details. The parts are incredibly fine and items such as the helo deck netting is so fine it is barely visible. A drilling jig is provided to facilitate the mounting of the Helo deck net rail.|

|I am impressed by the way the parts in this set fold up. I really like seeing the railing attached to the various platform based. This eliminates the hassle of placing them, something I have a great deal of difficulty with. Some of the platform parts have underside bracing that is created by folding the part under.|
|The instructions are well written and well illustrated. They show enough detail view to leave little doubt as to where everything goes. The instructions show the way the photo etch is incorporated with the kit supplied parts. Gold Medal Models continues to set the standard for well written instructions.|
