The U.S.S. Crockett was one of the seventeen gunboats in the Asheville Class. This class had the distinction of being the first group of Navy Ships to be powered by a gas turbine. The Crockett was capable of a top speed of 50 knots but more impressive still was the fact that she could accelerate her 230 tons from 0 to 40 knots in 60 seconds.
The Dumas model of the Crockett is a builders boat. She features balsa plank over die-cut mahogany frame construction for the hull, and conventional die-cut construction for the superstructure. #2105 is an optional deck hardware kit with more than 80 cast fittings. Included in the deck hardware are all the armaments needed to send her in to battle. #2341 is the twin screw running hardware kit used to drive the Crockett. It has everything needed to complete your drive line except motors. Use two Dumas motors #2004 for 6 volt power. If you are a military enthusiast you will certainly want to try your hand at the Dumas U.S.S. Crockett.
