Product Description

Dragon 7086 - 1/700 U.S.S. Laffey DD-459 1942

The USS Laffey (DD-459) was commissioned on 31 March 1942 and was dispatched to the Pacific. It helped rescue survivors from the USS Wasp, before later engaging in a fierce battle near Guadalcanal. In the battle on 13 November 1942, Laffey took on a Japanese battleship and two destroyers at point-blank range before succumbing to the enemy’s superior gunfire. The USS Laffey was sunk with heavy loss of life. On the other hand, the USS Woodworth (DD-460) was commissioned one month after the Laffey. Serving in the Pacific theater, the USS Woodworth had a busy time in numerous engagements with Japanese aircraft, a cruiser, destroyers, ground artillery and a submarine. After surviving the war, this destroyer was subsequently transferred to the Italian Navy.

Since the design of these plastic kits is based on a larger 1/350 kit, these new ships benefit from unprecedented levels of detail. There are photo-etched metal parts (for example, funnel ladders, bridge supports). Modelers can produce both the Laffey and Woodworth, with decal markings provided for both vessels. Since the box contains one waterline hull and one full hull, modelers can decide which ship will receive the relevant hull. With this 1+1 set, there are two very good reasons inside the box for ship modelers to acquire these important WWII destroyers!

Dragon has drawn together a trio of 1/700 scale plastic warships from WWII. In fact, they’re all destroyers, representing three warships of the US Navy (USN) that fought in the Pacific. When war engulfed the USA in December 1941, the USN had 100 modern destroyers. However, with greater dangers presented by submarines and aircraft, destroyers grew in size in order to accommodate better weapons and radars and to provide greater survivability throughout the war.

Each of these kits allows modelers to choose either of two ship options since the appropriate components and decals are all included in the box. They fought in the ferocious Pacific battles, some being lost in combat and others present for the surrender ceremony in Tokyo Bay in 1945. Aircraft carriers might gain a lot of the limelight for their role in the Pacific War, but destroyers to escort them were critical assets too.
