At sea aboard USS Stethem (DDG 63) – A Tactical Tomahawk Cruise Missile launches from the guided missile destroyer USS Stethem (DDG 63) during a live-warhead test. The missile traveled 760 nautical miles to successfully impact it’s intended target on San Clemente Island, part of the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) test range in Southern California. The Tactical Tomahawk is the next generation of Tomahawk cruise missile, and adds the capability to reprogram the missile while in-flight to strike any of 15 preprogrammed alternate targets, or redirect the missile to any Global Positioning System (GPS) target coordinates. It also will be able to loiter over a target area for some hours, and with its on-board TV camera, will allow the war fighting commanders to assess battle damage of the target, and, if necessary redirect the missile to any other target. Launched from the Navy's forward-deployed ships and submarines, Tactical Tomahawk will provide a greater flexibility to the on-scene commander. Tactical Tomahawk is scheduled to join the fleet in 2004. U.S. Navy photo. (RELEASED)

I was looking at Arleigh Burke Destroyers and wanted to learn what the differences are in the orignal & the newer Flight II and Flight IIA variants. I found in this quote from the following article :

Quote:
The Navy also found that refitting a bulbous bow on a DDG-51 Class Destroyer results in tremendous fuel savings from reduced ship resistance. Although the original funding for this project was $3.4 million, savings for 50 ships in the DDG-51 Class are estimated at $200 million. The bulbous bow concept has been well received, and as a result of the great potential for cost savings, bow designs for future ships are being reexamined. The success of the bulbous bow retrofit has resulted in the Navy aggressively pursuing spin-off technologies with the potential for similar fuel savings.



http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/systems/ship/ddg-51-upgrade.htm

Is this different than the bows of the Spruance & Ticonderoga? The only dry dock pics I've seen of Arleigh Burkes all resemble the same sonar as the Sprucans & Ticos. Do the full hull kits available (Dragon, Trumpeter, etc.) show these Flight II & Flight IIA differences accurately?

Flight I does not have a hanger to permantly keep helicopters on board. The flight II and IIA are the redesigns to make a hanger to be able to support i think 2 helos. there are other differences as well and they can be found here:
http://www.fas.org/man/dod-101/sys/ship/ddg-51.htm

I just started building the U.S.S. Cole and it doesn't have a hanger.It does have the bulbous bow. I have a dragon tico but i am at work and i can't go see if it has this bow or not but i think it might. I want to build the Churchill as well but I do not have the kit yet to see what the changes in the model are. I also plan to get the new warship pictorial on the burke class. I guess i need to post some pics of the build.

I had a member IM me this morning asking about this; I apologize that I wasn't able to respond or get your identity, but here we go!

This thread, is of course, for all fans of the DDG-51 class of US Navy Destroyer. Panda released a couple plastic kits in 1/350th, as did Blue Water Navy (picked up by Yankee Modelworks), and Dragon will apparently be repopping the Panda kits soon. Both Pit Road and Dragon released Burke Class models in 1/700th scale

Classic Warships has a recently released book on the class with tons of good photographs and information.

Burke Model Reviews:
* 1/350th Panda DDG-51 Arleigh Burke
* 1/700th Pit Road DDG-54 Curtis Wilbur
* 1/700th Dragon DDG-89 USS Mustin

If you want to search for others go to the main Navy Galleries page and enter the hull number in paratethis without a dash (such as "(ddg 51)") and check "exact" and it will pick up photos of just that ship.

and that, everyone, is how you start off a CASF thread right!

I'm sad to say that I haven't touched my 1/700 Mustin, since the review.

But as Maxim pointed out it appears that the hangar deck is too long and the hangar bay too short..

Ouch! I would have never known...

So the Flight II kits are out of scale, how about the standard DDG51 ship kits?

The rest of the Flight I kits still have a too large helo deck, but it isnt as noticeable as on the flight IIAs. Really the issue is that the main deck extends further aft into the helo deck on the port side on the real ship. I would go to this pic to see the issue.

http://www.navy.mil/view_single.asp?id=31767

On the Skywave/Dragon kits, the starboard helo deck wall is in its right position, but the portside wall should extend 1/4 inch further aft.

http://www.modelwarships.com/reviews/sh ... -54-03.jpg

Again, its much more minor than the Flight IIA and I'm not planning on fixing my Cole to be that way. I did, however repair my two IIAs by extending the hangar over the weekend. Wasnt too hard to do.

hey Tracy,
just in case you wanted to know i sent you a IM on Oct 30th about making calling all ship fans thread for the burke. I did not create it cause i saw the USN destroyer thread and did not want to viloate thread rules.

I am building the USS Cole 1/350 by panda. I have stopped on it for the moment because i want to get the classic warship pictoral on it. I also have the flagship PE set to add to it.

now to go order "the book"

Discovery Channel has an excellent one hour documentary called Destroyer Forged in Steel. It shows the construction of the Chafee, with all kinds of filming of the ship in dry dock, during sea trials, etc. I saw it in HD, and it was amazing...

Just let me add that I commissioned USS Paul Hamilton DDG 60 and I am a plankowner. Served 2 1/2 years on board as a Chief. So, I think I can be a good reference for allot of folks. Great class of ship to be on.

I just saw an excerpt from a Janes article that the Burkes are having structural problems with their bows, and a program has been started to stiffen them. Anyone else hear this?

:wave_1:

Since this is an Arleigh Burke class thread, I'm gonna put photos in it.
I'm in the process of scratchbuilding USS McCampbell DDG-85 in 1/350. I absolutely have no idea if I will use some photoetching or not.

As of this time I'm still drawing plans for the ship. As a kid, I don't know anything about scaling up plans but I only have here a 1/700 plan though.

This is going to be a VERY exciting build for me

Nick

Q: How did Paul build a FLT I Cole out of a FLT II Mustin kit? I am interested in doing the same conversion.

That is interesting!
(I just hope Paul would see your question :big_grin: !)

Well here is my progress of my McCampbell. I will be using leftover railings, and lots of copper wire. As what I had said, I don't have exact 1:350 plans so I'm not sure if the model is scaled to 1:350.

The hull is made of paper and is sprayed with red for flaws to be checked.

Next will be detailing the bow and stern.
(I got your PM Foeth. thanks though)

Anyone have any problems attaching the front deck of the Dragon Arleigh Burke kit?It doesn't seem to sit right the rear does but I already glued it once and removed it so I'm just wondering is it just me or is the hull warped?

As I haved observed, McCampbell doesn't have a CIWS and my dome arrangements are all wrong! This could result with some serious rebuilding.

For me, the mast the most challenging, using lots of very tiny pieces of wire making the yardarms.
