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.
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!
