Very well done! I'm looking forward to getting that kit and adding it to the build list.

Model Maniac,

That kit doesn't include PE does it? It includes plastic railings, right? A friend picked one up and it had PE railings in it but I don't think the kit was sealed so I think they were dropped in. I think I saw plastic railings on the sprues.

Jon, if your friend picked up the AFV Club "Chung Kung" Taiwanese version, then that one comes with some PE railings and resin parts: http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10088910

Jonathan,

The kit doesn't come with PE, only plastic railings. I made clear in my post that this is

"Academy's USS Oliver Hazard Perry FFG-7 1:350 w/ Detail-Up Parts from MK1 - by "Toom":"

MK1 is a Korean company. A fellow modeler helped ordered it from an online site for me. :wave_1:

Hi all,

Maybe I am wrong, but as I am building the same ship -- not this same model though -- and I am therefore quite familiar with this class, I would suggest the funnel is placed pointing in the opposite direction. As for the rest, the construction is amazing !!!!

Brgds,

Willie.

Nice clean build, I love the Perry's ! Did you build all the models in the pic's on your site ? If so, you are a Model Maniac, impressive.

Tony

Nice clean build, but as Willie said, Funnel is wrong way around and the short hulled OHP's carried the SH-2 Seasprite helo.

Regards

John

Many thanks for more kind comments and compliments since my last reply. I really appreciate them!

Willie, where is the funnel? I'll look up the instruction sheets to see its direction. Maybe my modeler didn't look carefully.

tonphil1960, I'm afraid it's impossible for anyone including myself to build all the models on my site in a lifetime. I have five modelers working for me and three of them are very good ship builders. "Toom" is just one of the three. This list shows what ships they're building:

"Toom":
- Tamiya's IJN Battleship "Yamato" 1:350 w/ 3 sheets of local-made PE upgrade sets
-----

"Niphon":
- Hasegawa's IJN Battleship "Mutsu" 1:350 w/ full option PE/brass upgrade kits
-----

"Tazmanian":
- Tamiya's Japanese WWII Battleship "Musashi" 1:350 w/ local made PE parts (3 sheets)
- Revell's SMS Emden 1:350 w/ local made PE
- ICM's Markgraft Battleship 1:350 w/ local made PE
- Trumpeter's Russian Cruiser Admiral Lazarev (Ex Frunze) 1:350 w/ PE upgrade sets from Lion Roar
- Flagman's German U-Boat type VIIC carrying 4 midget submarines "Bibers" 1:350

Apart from warships, I collect armors, warplanes, figures and dioramas as well. My purchase record has registered
nearly 2,800 items! I've put a lot of money into them, my dream has materialized. :wave_1:

Hi Model Maniac, excellent job you have done with this OHP, congratulations.
About mistake made in the funnel, look at this:

Major inclination of the funnel must be turned to aft.......

Thanks, Jimmy, for your illustrative explanation of the funnel. I looked up the instruction sheets and found that "Toom" who built this ship for me
didn't look at them carefully and made a mistake in the direction of the funnel tower. Thanks also for your comments on the build. More are coming... :wave_1:

G'day MM,

I have this one on the slipway to commence some time this year and have the MK1 PE as well - did yours come with some sort of instruction sheet or did you have to guess what everything was for - mine had no instructions (unlike the GMM PE I have received in the past) and I can see that some of what is there will be a challenge to work out.

cheers,

bj

Hi bj,

I wonder why your MK1 PE didn't come with instruction sheets. Where did you buy it? Mine come with the sheets and "Toom" used them in building this ship for me.

This evening when I'm back home I'll look for the sheets and if I find them I'll take pictures and post them here for you.
Without instructions it's almost impossible to get things right.

Hi bj,

This is the instruction sheets of MK1 in color. I hope the pictures are good enough:
