USS FLETCHER

(FOR REVELL-GERMANY KIT#5091)

 

Revell has hit a home run with this kit! For nearly fifty years, the only large scale kit of the Fletcher class was the Lindberg Blue Devil kit. This kit is as advanced over the Lindbergh kits as the Fletcher was over the four-pipers of World War One.

 

Larry Hamilton recently posted an excellent set of photos on modelwarship.com and on modelshipwrights.com; these reviews are essentially the same and can be found here:
