Spruance Class Destroyers DD

These Museum Quality Replicas are recognized by the fastidious collectors of the world as the most accurate and finely detailed models yet produced and are individually handcrafted produced by artisans. These models were originally produced and sold at many times the current price.

The Spruance Class Destroyer model includes a wooden base, plastic cover, name plate and decals for hull number etc. It is 1:350 scale and 19” inches in length. The Spruance-class destroyer was developed by the United States to replace a large number of World War II–built Allen M. Sumner and Gearing-class destroyers and was the primary destroyer built for the U.S. Navy during the 1970s.

First commissioned in 1975, the class was designed with gas-turbine propulsion, all-digital weapons systems, and automated 5-inch guns. Serving for three decades, the Spruance class was designed to escort a carrier group with a primary ASW mission, though in the 1990s 24 members of the class were upgraded with the Mark 41 Vertical Launching System (VLS) for the Tomahawk surface-to-surface missile. Rather than extend the life of the class, the Navy accelerated its retirement. The last ship of the class was decommissioned in 2005, with most examples broken up or destroyed as targets.
