Product Description
Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/96     (1/8 inch = 1 foot)

 Recommended for:

The 2,050-ton Fletcher class was one of the most successful wartime and post-war destroyer classes of the US Navy and arguably the most significant class in the Pacific war.  175 ships of the class were produced over a 32-month period during World War II.  They were produced in two groups:  58 were built with a high, "Round Bridge" and 117 (two-thirds of the class) were completed with a low, "Square Bridge" which afforded better visibility for anti-aircraft defense.  Several Fletchers served in foreign navies, the last, Mexico's Cuitláhuac, the former USS John Rodgers, retired in 2001.

This model kit is designed for Fletchers with the Bethlehem Steel-type square bridge having an "A/T" door on the port, aft bulkhead and no door to the captain's sea cabin aft on the starboard side.  

The Bath Iron Works-type Square Bridge is available separately.  Consult your resources to be sure which type you need.

Features:
  • overall dimensions accurately scaled from builder's plans
  • open, exterior 5'-6" "A/T" door locations per photos of actual Bethlehem Steel-built Fletchers 
  • open, interior "M/J" door frames 
  • interior bulkheads with accurately positioned structural framing for the pilot house forward, the starboard side light locker and the cabin's sea cabin
  • interior radio, compass and electrical component replicas positioned on bulkheads as found on the museum ship USS Kidd DD-661
  • scale, open, exterior 16" diameter airports (portholes) in proper locations
  • scale, open, interior 10" diameter airport (porthole) on bulkhead between the Pilot House and the Fire Control Station
  • integrated Mk.37 Director tower (Mk.37 available separately)
  • exterior airport (porthole) wiper motor locations per Bath Iron Works drawings
  • mast support frame
  • ship's bell suspended from mast frame
  • integrated loudspeaker (aka "reproducer")
  • accurate, standard antenna lead-in insulators in proper locations
  • six "A/T" doors with hinges and framing, two with porthole for the pilot house, choice of:
    • two no-porthole doors, one for the starboard side and another as an option for the aft bulkhead opening
    • two different "indented" style doors, as additional options for the aft bulkhead opening
