    I am trying to find out if a paper card kit has been developed or someone is developing a kit of the gearing class destroyers, or something close to it maybe a fletcher class. i have most of the pictures and plans for this type of ship and wish to model the "[FONT=&quot]USS Meredith (DD-890)"[/FONT] in her '60 to 65' configuration since my father served on her at this time i would like to give this as a gift for him to remember these days.
    any help would be great.

    I can't remember ever seeing a Gearing class DD, especially in mid 60's fit. The Fletcher frame may require too much mod to be worth using.

    Linked is a photo DD-884 in 1971, she has been extensively modified since her 1945 launch.

    Also see USS Perkins. mid 60's
