Recommended for the Lindberg 1/125 scale “Blue Devil Destroyer” USS Melvin DD-680, Fletcher class.
This model represents the deck house fit to late-war Fletchers as part of modifications to increase the ships' anti-aircraft (AA) capability. The deck house was positioned between the funnels, replacing the forward quintuple torpedo mount. Two Mk.51 directors (not included) were normally located on the deck house upper platform.
When fitting your new deck house to your Fletcher model, position the deck house so that the water-tight door faces aft.
