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.

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

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 in the halfhull_corrected4b.rar file
