Dragon released 1/350 scale injection-molded kits of Gleaves-class destroyers in 2008, and these have been hugely popular. Dragon has kept the “warship revolution” rolling with the larger Gearing class of destroyers. The new U.S.S. Gearing is finely produced in 1/350 scale and is replete with an amazing level of detail.

The U.S.S. Gearing (DD-710) was the lead ship of a class of destroyers. The destroyer was 119.1m long and had a beam of 12.22m. Crewed by 336 sailors, it had six 5-inch guns, 12 40mm antiaircraft guns and 11 20mm antiaircraft guns, plus a complement of torpedoes.

The new 1/350 kit shows the U.S.S. Gearing as it appeared in 1945. In this large scale, all kinds of amazing details are shown. This kit features
all-new parts such as the hull and superstructure. The distinctive 5-inch gun turrets are accurately rendered by three-directional slide molds. Meanwhile, other fantastic details such as the twin 40mm antiaircraft guns, 20mm guns and searchlights are inherited from Dragon’s series of Gleaves-class destroyers. As well as the highly-refined plastic components, there is a generous selection of photo-etched parts to enhance detail and add a refined look. There are even half a dozen miniature sailors to give life to the vessel. This exciting new kit of the USS Gearing keeps up the momentum of the warship revolution that Dragon has begun!
