1/500 Mk.56 Directors
gary99 I think that there were 4 directors on the Shang in the 60's, correct? I am building a Renwal 1/500 model now and want to include the directors. By the way do you have a fantail platform without the gun tubs? I don't trust myself to do the surgery.
gary99 Little known fact: If you flip the switch that connects a 5”/38 gun to the gun director, the gun instantly points in the same direction as the little radar dish. We found that to be true in 1966 or 1967 when the director’s dish was pointed straight up and someone engaged the gun; unfortunately they had parked the ass end of an F8 directly over the gun. It makes a sound like crunching potato chips when the stabilizer implodes. The fly boys were pissed, but the gun was not harmed. Gary Canant USS Shangri La (CVA38) Marine Detachment
