Product Description

Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/500

Contains 4 directors.

The US Navy Mark 37 Director was used to control the fire of the 5”/38 caliber dual purpose batteries against both aircraft and surface targets, to direct the fire of starshells for the illumination of surface targets and to position the searchlights.

Mk.37 directors were commonly installed on many classes of US Navy and US Coast Guard ships during World War II through the Cold War.  Succeeding the earlier "angle-back" Mk.37 directors, and early "square-back" directors, the late "square-back" Mk.37 directors featured a shielded, open director captain position (also known as a "Control Officer's Cockpit"), three observation hatches instead of five, and just two telescope port covers, one for the "Pointer" and one for the "Trainer".   Many earlier Mk.37 directors were modified to this configuration.  During the Cold War, the directors were enlarged, receiving a very boxy-shaped housing.
