USS KIDD
DDG-993 ship model

USS KIDD DDG-993 was the lead ship of the most powerful multi-purpose destroyers in the US fleet.   

Kidd-class ships were designed as more advanced multipurpose ships, in contrast to their predecessor's focus on anti-submarine warfare, adding considerably enhanced anti-aircraft capabilities. Originally ordered for the former Imperial Iranian Navy, the contracts were canceled when the 1979 Iranian Revolution began, and the ships were completed for the U.S. Navy. 

Kidd-class ships were equipped with heavy-duty air conditioning and other features that made them suitable in hot climates, they tended to be used in the Middle East, specifically the Persian Gulf.  In 2001, the KIDDS were decommissioned and sold to Taiwan, now being known as the Kee Lung class.

Like all of our warship models, this USS Kidd model has the following qualities:
 

- Plank-on-frame, hollow hull construction (very important), weighing less than 10 lbs  (A solid hull of this model would be over 30 lbs which feels like a heavy toy rather than an art piece.)

- Hollow superstructure is comprised of many individual thin pieces of wood glued together, not several solid pieces of wood stacking on top one another.

- Windows are cutouts (not black decals), thanks to the hollow structures.

-  No computer-printed paper deck

- >95% of parts are wood and metal
.

- Light "rust"  appearance to portray realism of a tough destroyer.
