Definitely want more. Like a 1945 Mississippi, or a Tennessee with optional parts for a 1945 refit California or a West Virginia. For example.


Oh, I'd certainly be all over that action! Though as awesome as the modernized Big Five are, I'll put my thumb on the scale for the long-neglected (in injection styrene) New Mexico-class. All things considered, though, I think the best choice for a future release would be the Brooklyn-class. There's a LOT of great paint schemes, historical events, and even foreign service to be captured with that class of ships!

But we're getting ahead of ourselves a bit there, so taking a step back... I'm mighty pleased to see a new release come from Very Fire after that scare we had a little while back! Best wishes to Very Fire with just the planned releases we've already heard about!

FWIW, the VF Atlanta has been posted on Hobbyeasy.com, a site that I use now and then with reliability:

Oh that is gorgeous! Those molded details look fantastic.

(Hobbyeasy is also one of this site's sponsors, so they're good!)

Ugh... I don't want to be that guy :sorry: Just noticed that the deluxe version has MK22 radars included. Not for Atlanta but a sign of perhaps other variants to come.

Another thing that's rattling around in the brain, timing and very similar details and parts break down to the Vee Hobby 1/700 San Diego that's just come out.... :thinking:

I'd say the details and moulding quality of the Very Fire is many times superior to that of the Vee, even accounting for the larger scale. The vents below/on the funnels, for example, are quite different in how they're depicted and shows they're definitely not working from the same CAD:

As for which is more accurate, I think this photo of San Diego puts it in favour of VF with the single horizontal "bar" and multiple vertical elements: https://www.navsource.org/archives/04/053/0405314.jpg

An "advance" air shipment is on it's way to Free Time and the "standard" version should be in my hands within several weeks. Hope to post pics soon. The price was $100 including shipping! She was preordered and prepaid and got confirmation that my kit is included in the advance shipment! The full shipment follows via container.

Apologies to all for my misunderstanding of the email I received concerning their receipt of this kit here.

I saw Model Warships posted on their Facebook page yesterday that they received the deluxe 1/350 Atlanta for review. Hopefully we will be seeing that here soon! Can someone please explain to me the differences between the standard kit and the deluxe? I see the kits advertised on one site as the deluxe having photo etch and a wood deck but my standard Cleveland came with some photo etch so I'm wondering.

Typically, the deluxe versions come with way more photo etch than the standard kits. There's also usually a wooden deck, brass gun barrels, and some assorted resin detail pieces.

EG, the Cleveland deluxe set has brass masts/yardarms, PE catapults/cranes, etc. I'd assume it's a similar deal with the Atlanta.

This is an image of the Deluxe set, Black outlined PE is all that's in the base kit. Red is what's in the deluxe. Wish I had a higher res image but this should get the idea across. Their Taiho is similar, very minimal PE in the base kit which I could see making some modelers happy but others not so much.

Looks like it's essentially the same thing but with extra add on details, that really helps. Thank you!
