Fletcher Class Destroyer RC Model Ship 3D print model

Fletcher Class Destroyers were the US Navy's workhorses during WWII. This is a 3D Printed Radio Controlled scale model warship and it is like the one used in the 2020 Tom Hanks movie Greyhound.

At 1/72th scale, the model dimensions are 1600L x 186W x 425H (mm). The hull and integrated deck are printed in six sections vertically. Hull details include dual 8mm propeller tube bores for 3.175mm propeller shafts, rudder servo mount, and bilge strakes. Left and right mounts are provided for brushed RS-550 type motors. Scale details include: MK-37/MK-51 FCS, MK-30 turrets, 40mm Bofors /20mm Oerlikon anti-aircraft weapons, quintuple torpedo tubes, depth charge racks, depth charge launchers, radar antennas, whale boats , life rafts and sailor figures.

Hull access is provided through three removable super structures and a rudder access deck plate.

STL files were designed in Sketchup and Cura sliced. 3D Printer used had a 300x300x340mm build volume.

The instruction manual and 3D PDF files can be downloaded for free here for buyer inspection:

Notes: Some Fletcher Purchasers have requested Hull #'s 1 thru 5 be cut in half so the tallest hull segment is less trhan ~200mm.

These half hulls are included.

    Another great looking 3D project Ben. Will probably be all over this when I finish the Flower Class.I will have to make more room in my little flat.lol Brilliant work , I will post a link in my Flower class build log here https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?3313079-3d-printed-Flower-Class-Corvette on the scale boats forum for some traffic.

        It is what I have come to expect from ben, top notch. I have already printed, and built his PT Boat. Excellent files, had to buy a larger printer, Creality Ender 5 Plus, also Bondtech DX Extruder. Produces great prints from your files. I use Prusa's slicer, it is the best that I have found, plus they have CE5P built into their slicer. Best of both worlds..... MBW
