8 February 2013 : Just over a week after the previous Page, today I proudly present Model Maniac Page 67 - Part A. In this Part "Pramuk Kiatjarungphan" presents five new modern warships from five nations. The first one is JMSDF Aegis Destroyer DDG-173 KONGO 1:350 from Trumpeter which he built some time ago. The second and third one are HswMS "Visby" Class Corvette 1:350 from Orange Hobby and Chinese Kang Ding Class Frigate 1:350 from Trumpeter which he built between 22 Jan - 3 Feb. The fourth and fifth one are USS "Freedom" (LCS-1) 1:350 from Bronco and PLAN DDG-139 "NINGBO" 1:350 from Bronco which he managed to finish during 4-7 Feb or 4 days only! Such an amazing build speed. But after this he will take a month or two off to do exhibition project with his friends. As always, I hope you'll enjoy viewing!.

I'd like to thank for all kind feedbacks and compliments that we received concerning Page 66 - Part D. They are very encouraging and they inspire us to keep producing quality models & dioramas and showing finest quality pictures. Comments and suggestions are welcome in my Model Maniac Forum
and in my Facebook Group named Model Maniac

001 - 024 : Trumpeter's JMSDF Aegis Destroyer DDG-173 KONGO 1:350 - by "Pramuk Kiatjarungphan"
The Kongo Class an improved version of the U.S. Navy’s Arleigh Burke class, displacing 9,485 tons (full load). It The largest size among DDG and SPY-1D AEGIS radars equipped on the four faces of the bridge prove a capacity of this type. - The Aegis system's maximum detection distance, the number of simultaneously tracked targets, reaction time and missile range is superior in all points by comparison with the former Tartar system. The ASROC anti-submarine rocket, which is the anti-submarine weapon, along with the Standard anti-aircraft missile, are launched from the VLS (the vertical launch system) which is imbedded in the front and back section decks. The third unit of the class [Myoko] was the first with SM2MR Block III (the Block II was used on the first two ships). They are to receive New ASROC (presumedly ASROC with Japanese lightweight torpedo), and to be fitted with P/S(1)2 12.7mm or 20mm with night vision equipment.

089 - 122 : PLAN DDG-139 "NINGBO" 1:350 - by "Pramuk Kiatjarungphan"
In 2002 China signed a contract with Russia to purchase an additional two Sovremenny class destroyers worth US$1.4 billion. These ships were improved Project 956EM variant with improved weapon systems.The second hull 139 Ningbo was launched in July 2004 but the scheduled delivery date was postponed to September 2006 due to a fire accident that took place onboard the ship in April 2005. The Sovremenny class is a typical Cold War-era Soviet design, with a large amount of weapon systems and sensors, as well as sophisticated electronic warfare and countermeasures (EW/ECM) equipments. The ship has a tall, large profile with all weapon systems and sensors \ exposed externally, increasing the ship’s radar cross section significantly.
As a multirole destroyer mainly designed for the surface strike mission, the Sovremenny class is only equipped with basic self-defence antisubmarine weapons. The ship lacks the large and expensive towed sonar array and antisubmarine missile system that are commonly found on US and Japanese warships.
