  • Is there any rumors out there that ANY company will be producing a 1/350 scale Charles F.Adams class guided missle destroyer in styrene? These companies are all seeing fit to make more and more modern ships, I hope someone does an Adams class.

    As long as you're driving the thread away from the OP's question,   Iron Shipwright also makes an Adams-class DDG as the Barney (DDG-6)

    It lists for less than 160.

  • I know all about those resin kits.  The price is why I haven't purchased it.  It is also why I am hoping for a styrene kit, maybe by Dragon, Trumpeter, or Hasegawa.

  • I will tell you what. Why don,t we all hope that our "expert in residence" and technical advisor TRACY WHITE will prevail on DRAGON to consider it . I would definitely buy the kit if DRAGON made it under TRACY,S guidance. A 1/350 version of this class would be great.I,ve mentioned doing RADARS for 1/96 scale versions of this ship too. I don,t want one that large . 1/350 would be right in good company with all the 1/350 ships I have now. Now if we only could get an AKA and an APA  (not resin) in this scale too . And one or two Post WW-2 angle deck carriers , like the BON HOMME RICHARD or the MIDWAY !! Ah , to wish !! tabkerbuilder

  • I served aboard the USS Barney DDG-6 from 1984 to 1987.  It's why I want this kit. ISM kit is my actual ship from the corect era.  Just wish I had those kind of funds.

  • The MIKE : Hi , I know only to well about the funds end of model acquisition . I have missed a few because it takes a while to get it together between contracts(My funds take care of my missus) The contracts take care of my car and my own builds in whatever scale . The CHARLES F.ADAMS is an attractive ship in any scale . The company (BaD SHIPMODELS) that I do the radars for has a 1/96 scale (their specialty) and she is awesome . I am with you in that I would love a CHARLES F. ADAMS and a JOHN PAUL JONES ( FORREST SHERMAN CLASS ) in 1/350 that I could afford in my personal group . Oh well , we,ll have to wait and see. I hope soon , I ain,t getting any younger !     tankerbuilder

  • My father served onboard USS Benjamin Stoddert  in the later 1960's; I built him the Dragon 1/700 scale offering of the Adams (converted to Stoddert) but it is much too small.  I would love to build a 1/350 model for him in styrene. One can only hope, dream, or start one's own model company . . . Whistling

  • I've built two Dragon kits and own three unnassembled.  The sonar domes are incorrect for the earlier Adams, and the forward mast is completely wrong, as is the radar dishes.  I served on the USS Barney DDG-6 in the mid 1980's.

  • If anyone knows how to contact Trumpeter, Dragon, DML, Cyber-Hobby, or any other company that produces styrene ship models, we should all then suggest an Adams class in 1/350.  They would get maximum mileage out of the molds since the American ships had numerous differences, from weapons to radars to sonar domes.  Plus West Germany had their own versions with differing stacks, and then Australia also had them.  Not to mention the ones sold to third other nations , plus the hulls that were converted to power barges.  Lots of boxing options.
