USS Buck (DD-761) is a member of the Allen M. Sumner destroyer class. This model represents the ship as completed (her shakedown cruise was in September 1946), a configuration shared with vessels that served in the later part of WW2. Buck was completed too late to serve in the war. In this configuration she served in the Far East and along the US West Coast. Buck served mainly in the Korean theatre after a refit in 1950. Buck was later sold to Brazil in July 1973
Simple one piece model design for smaller scales and tweaked to ensure as compliant as possible with Shapeways across a range of materials and the perfect base on which modellers can add the fine detail flourishes to, depending on your skill level. The model has ‘floored guns’ for the best durability to reduce breakages, and be printable in the material offered. Designed by Philip Warnes and can be used at a larger hex scale with his SeaLion Supremacy
game, or any other naval tabletop game that uses this scale.
If you have family that served on this vessel, why not order a metal miniature to keep as a small family keepsake or gift for someone else whose family served onboard. Or maybe you had family who worked at the yards that built this vessel. Keep your family military history alive.
