1 72 Fletcher Class Destroyer RC Model

1 72 Fletcher Class Destroyer RC Model 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.
Great, perfect!

This is an amazing Model! Details and accuracy are very good. Can be scaled.
Excellent model that prints very well. It can easily be configured for most of the mid war fletchers
Again another first class model design with excellent instructions. Clearly a lot of time has went into preparing this detailed model and I would highly recommend this project even if it is you first large model. It can also be printed on smaller printers due to various hull options. However I have scaled mine up by 125% to a 2m long model using a CR10. I have built the sellers Castle corvette and this one is just as good. Thanks.
