1:350 USS DD445 FLETCHER
Product Details:

 

The Fletcher class, with over 175 produced, was the U.S. Navy's most     
widely used destroyer type and one of the most successful during the WWII     
period.  The ships displaced 2,050 tons and had an overall length of 376' 6". 
Fletcher class destroyers were powered by twin 30,000hp turbines which gave a 
top speed of 35 knots.  Finally, Fletchers were supremely adaptable and several
remained in service into the 1970's - a career of over 30 years.  DD445 U.S.S.
Fletcher was herself retired in 1969.
