Overview
-

The USS Stevens (DD-479) was one of the 175 Fletcher-class destroyers, which were considered one of the finest World War II warships of that type. What set her apart from most of the standard Fletcher-class destroyers was her aircraft-carrying capability. In May 1940 six of the Fletcher-class destroyers were selected for conversion into aircraft-carrying ships. The upgrades included installation of Mk VI pneumatic aircraft catapult for embarked OS2U Kingfisher float planes.

REVIEWS
-

"The real appeal of the series is the 129 color 3D drawings showing the ship and various sections/equipment from a variety of angles. If you want to paint every detail on the ship, here's an excellent reference."

- Historical Miniatures Gaming Society

"While this tome is specific to the USS Stevens, it will certainly support the details for many of the Fletcher Class Destroyers. If you have any of their previous books in [Kagero's] Super Drawings in 3D series, you know how great a value this book is."
