I just started to do 1/350 scale warship models with photo-etch. This Tamiya USS Fletcher has a combination of Gold Medal Models and Eduard photo-etch. It is my first finished ship with photo-etch. There are some scratch-built items on the ship particularly on the deck houses. I've got more Fletchers started. Being built are the USS The Sullivans and the USS Cassin Young DD 793. After that the USS Buchanan DD 484, and both WWII Laffeys.
