Default I'm going to do a DDG!

Just got the Trumpeter USS Hopper DDG 70 from Lucky in HK. Will make it into the USS Milius DDG 69. My oldest is a GM2 aboard her. I'll do the waterline version!

Very cool, especially when your project includes that personal connection. I'd like to know what you think of the kit. Looking forward to your progress!

I'll keep everyone posted of course. At first look' it is far cry from the Dragon! Some things molded to the Dragon (like the life ringers) are offer on their on sprue. I love having the choice of a water line version. I have lots of photos from all the times aboard her including the Tiger Cruise!

Put the water line plate in yesterday, plus some dry fit tests. Dragons version of this ship is old school compared to Trumpeter's version. Yeah, ya pay a lot but you also get a lot of kit! This will be fun! Gave the dragon DDG to my son's recruiter. He was over joyed to get and have a great story to tell future recruits !

Looking forward to this as well, I am just getting settled into my new house and got the new workbench built. I have the Hopper as well and be doing the Decatur DDG-73 as my first model ship ever., good to see the San Diego ships represented, lucky me i get to see them at work every day.

If either of you need DDG information, let me know.

The Trumpeter kit is the best DDG in 1/350, bar none. It is even better than the older resin kits. Worth every penny, but I am biased.

I agree, The deck actually fits to the hull with out gaps. Got Veteran Models resin bits but may not need them. Thanks for the photo offers, I have quite a few myself however, that being said I'm sure somewhere down the line I'll be saying 'wish I had a shot of that

I'm nothing if not slow. Trumpy kit, painting masking repainting, tricky decals. So far so good but lot more to do. Figure I would give a photo update. Never posted a model on the web before. Model of my sons ship using his camera................ irony/ no he forgot it.
The super structures are not glued in place.
