Ocean Voyage Models

Don sent out a Loyalhanna newsletter today and I discovered in his new line of models from Ocean Voyage out of Hong Kong a wonderful addition to any destroyerman's collection, a Charles F. Adams class DDG in 1:96 scale! To me, a retired Navyman who served aboard one of these beauties there's no destroyer better looking than the Adams class. I rode her through a hurricane in 1968 and she took all the Atlantic could throw at her without damage, her high clipper bow cutting through the seas with authority.
I might mention that some wag listed her as the Samuel Adams (BEER!) class instead of the Charles Adams class. Funny!
Now I have to find out if I can model her as the USS Sellers (DDG-11) with her suite of radars and Mk 11 Tartar missile launcher in place of the Mk 13 launcher, SPS-40, etc. pictured.

There's also a Sumner class, a Fletcher class, and a WWII DE in the series along with some other foreign warships.

That's great news to see since OV hasn't been offered by dealers in the past & has been difficult to communicate with since they have no English speaking staff. I'm still waiting to hear back on the IJN fittings.

As mentioned before, they are undoubtedly one of the best Chinese model ship manufacturers. With Loyalhanna carrying the line, it will be a great opportunity for those outside of Asia to get your hands on one of their kits.

They have some new kits due this year: 1/200 Kongo, 1/128 Scarnhorst & have been working on several modern USN DD.

Thaobas,
Nice to hear from another DDG-2 class sailor. I was a BM on Claude V. Ricketts (DDG-5). I tore up a shoulder and decided that I wanted to go back to the left coast, they sent me from a 19 year old great ship and crew to an almost new Sprucan that was a waste of beer cans to build her.
When we were getting ready for deployment they had a change of command for the DESRON and the closest they could come to having a cruise for the new Commodore was moving one of the FFG's through the naval railway in the shipyard!
Miss that old ship she was a fine lady....sorry they are all gone. Although from what I have seen the new DDG's are at least decent sea boats.
Was thinking that I had seen someone working on an Adams class on WMU, went on a quick search and found it there....here is the link to it I am not sure where he got the kit from and he hasn't posted in a while.
