No--I've got more than I'll ever build, now. Looking to thin out the collection of "closet queens". Just listed it on e-bay on basic auction. Users of this forum can get it for the fixed price, until I get a bid on e-bay.

I was asked if it came complete with fittings. Yes. There are a number of printed sheets with stapled envelopes containing white metal fittings. I have just looked closely at these for the first time (they are under the hull) and it looks to be pretty comprehensive. The rudder is fabricated brass and the railings are photo-etched brass. The hull is fiberglas, the deck is plastic and the stacks are vac-formed plastic. The superstructure appears to be built up from wood. So far as I can tell, it's not a Billing-type kit where you have to buy a fittings kit. (I've got one of those less a discontinued fittings kit--"Danneborg". Over the years, I've put things that seemed to be applicable into kit boxes and I added a pair of integrated electric motors, shafts and props to the box. The props appear to be the correct size, but they are not contra-rotating and they didn't come with the kit. Everything that came with the kit is still there. I bought this fron the "Model Dockyard" in Greenwich, UK back in the 80's and brought it home as overhead bin luggage. Been in my closet (actually 3, as I moved twice) ever since.

ONE IMPORTANT NOTE: As I was looking more closely at this, it's listed as a "Scout" Class Light Cruiser, not a Destroyer as I first thought.

Just noticed the one listed by Hampboats. His is different from mine, as his fittings are in plastic trays, where mine are in envelopes stapled to sheets of paper and I don't see the motor shafts in mine (but the included motors do have shafts and props). I suspect that mine is an earlier version (or a "non-export" version).
