1/72 Scale Radio Controlled Electric-Powered Almost-Ready-to-Run US Fletcher Class Destroyer Kit

Big, bold, beautiful-just like the originals.

Do you have what it takes to be a “Tin Can Sailor”? Tin Can Sailors fought the largest warships in the world with unarmored and lightly armed ships. Their Fletcher-Class Destroyers were tiny specks of metal on the vast expanse of the Pacific Ocean… but their valor was legendary.                                                         AquaCraft honors that valor with this remote controlled 1/72 scale replica of a Fletcher-class Destroyer. Over five feet in length, this model is massive and incredibly detailed from the tops of the stacks to the twin counter-rotating propellers. Plus, you can actually sail it! Re-enact the Battle off Samar, where seven American destroyers turned back an entire Japanese Battle Group, or just enjoy the realism as you cruise for up to an hour on a single battery charge.                                                                                                                                                                                                            The Fletcher-Class Destroyer looks great on static display and even better on the water!                                                                                                                                                                                                                       The principal anti-submarine armament of any ship for decades, depth charges were simply massive drums of explosives set to explode at a pre-selected depth. Our Fletcher-class Destroyer includes four depth charge racks.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                The amidships 40 mm AA mount and 5-inch turrets #3 and #4 remove easily to reveal a hatch for your radio and electronic gear. Look inside and you’ll see two pre-installed 550-size motors, ready to power you across the lake.                                                                                        This exceptional model arrives nearly ready to go, pre-painted and mostly pre-assembled. Put it on the included wooden display stand for an instant collection centerpiece or go the extra mile like a true Tin Canner; drop in your electronics and batteries, fire up the included motors, and sail it around the local lake!
