The Acheron class of twenty three destroyers built for the Royal Navy in 1911-1912 all served in WW1. A further six were built for the Royal Australian Navy as River class Destroyers.
Considered at the time to be excellent sea boats, they were fast and much drier at sea than previous ships. Of the twenty nine, three were lost in action, one to mines and the other two were sunk by U-boat torpedoes in the last year of the war. All remaining ships were scrapped or sunk as targets in the 1920s.
This 1:72 scale hull comes with Anchor positions, "A" bracket positions, shaft exits and hull plating moulded in.
1,048mm long and 102mm wide.
Price for hull: A$ 165.00 + freight *
