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.

Highly detailed ship with comprehensive instructions. Printing going well so far. Printing with Ender 5 for larger parts and Flashforge Dreamer for smaller parts. Particularly happy with the file options offered.

This is a fantastic model. I requested a modification for a flat bottomed waterline hull and within a day the mod was done. Excellent!

Wow! This model is so well designed and the accompanying manual makes the overall construction a breeze. I have only just started, have read the manual and think this creator is well worth following and I look forward to purchasing more of his models. If this is a first model ship you want to build, well, be prepared, it will take time to print, but the quality of the model, it's size and the straight forward method of construction makes this a model I would recommend to modellers who are new to the hobby. Give this creators models a go. If you stick with the printing process, you will end up with a spectacular model that could even be a well detailed static model.
