The Takom 1/700 scale Gearing-class destroyer USS Southerland (DD-743) 1945 is unique in that it provides both a World War II U.S. Navy ship model (waterline or full hull) and a 1/72 Mk.38 5”/38 twin gun mount. The Southerland was one of just four “Stretched Sumner” or Gearing-class destroyers commissioned in time to participate in the Pacific Theater and held the unique title of the “First to anchor” in Tokyo Bay as WWII ended. The ship itself served until 1981 and was ultimately used as a target in August 1997.
