|When I first looked at the USS Smith DD-17 kit from Chuan Yu Model in 1:200 scale, my biggest disappointment was the lack of anchors in the kit. (Review of Chuan Yu Model 1:200 Scale USS Smith DD-17). The destroyer was built without
hull side anchor hawse and therefore did not use stockless anchors. What was needed were stocked anchors of the correct size to rest on the forecastle anchor wash boards and I didn't know where to find those. I sure do know now where to find
them, from Baghdad. Actually that is Baghdad, Florida, the home of Nautilus Models. James Corley, major domo of Nautilus, moved from the Marietta, Georgia and the congestion of Atlanta, Georgia, to the scenic wonders of Baghdad, Florida,
and now has a new set of 3D printed parts just for the Smith kit. The Nautilus Models USS Smith DD-17 Weapons Set in 1:200 scale is perfect for the model from Chuan Yu Model. It can also be used for any other 1:200 scale kit for early USN
destroyers that used stocked anchors, 3-inch guns or twin torpedo tubes. USS Smith originally carried three single torpedo tubes, not twin mounts but by 1916 twin tubes replaced the single tubes on the Smith Class. I don't know of any other kit
that fits this description other than the Chuan Yu Model kit. As the label states, this is a weapons set, not an anchor set. The anchors are only a small part of the set. You get three stocked anchors, six 3-inch guns with separate base mounts and gun
blocks, and four twin torpedo mounts for the WWI 1916 fit.
