USS GEARING CLASS

The Gearing class was a group of 98 destroyers built for the US Navy during and shortly after World War II.   Four Gearing-class ships still exist, as museum ships: USS Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr. (DD-850), USS Orleck (DD-886), the Turkish ship TCG Gayret (D-352) formerly USS Eversole (DD-789), the Mexican ship ARM Netzahualcˇyotl (D-102) formerly USS Steinaker ((DD-863).
 

 
 
 



This Gearing destroyer class  model features:

- Plank-on-frame, hollow hull construction (very important), weighing less than 10 lbs  (A solid hull of this model would be over 30 lbs which feels like a heavy toy rather than an art piece.)

- Hollow superstructure is comprised of many individual thin pieces of wood glued together, not several solid pieces of wood stacking on top one another.

- Windows are cutouts (not black decals), thanks to the hollow structures.

-  No computer-printed paper deck

- >95% of parts are wood and metal
.

- Light "rust"  appearance that only master modelers can make.



40" long x 15" tall x 7 wide    $2,500     S&H $90
