1/72nd Scale Arleigh Burke Class Destroyer Hull - SOLD! - $555.00

This is a scratch built, 1/72nd scale Arleigh Burke Class AEGIS Guided Missile Destroyer panel-on-frame. A 1/700th scale model of DDG-51 is complete and was used as a reference. An Italeri, 1/72nd scale, SH-60 Seahawk helicopter is also complete. The hull was built using some of the same methods as my 1/96th scale Frigate, FFG-54. The photo to the left is the actual ship. I used a coat of polyester resin on the inside of the hull, and then applied a liberal coat of gloss white epoxy enamel, so the hull is sealed very well. The exterior is also resin coated and primed.
