First of the Smith Class destroyers, DD-17 entered service in 1909. Placed in reserve after three years, she was reactivated to serve in WW1. She patrolled home waters and later escorted convoys in and out of Brest on the French coast. After the war, she was used as a target in bombing tests, before being scrapped in the 1920s. Not a career full of glory and fame, but an interesting ship, nonetheless.

The model's length is about 450mm, width 40mm. Hull and superstructure are made from SLA photosensitive resin, and metal barrels, mast, and bollard, are included, as well as a photo etched detailing sheet. No radio control components are included. The model can built as a static display subject, but an expert modeller could reduce the weight to match the displacement and create an interesting remote control craft.
