Product Description
Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/96     (1/8 inch = 1 foot)

Set includes 2 mounts (turrets) with barrels.

The Mk.32 version of the 5"/38 cal. Twin Mount was installed aboard aircraft carriers and cruisers as well as rebuilt pre-war battships.  A Mk.28 mount for fast battleships is available separately.  "Best Cost" version available separately (click here).  

Recommended for: 
Among naval historians, the US Navy 5"/38 caliber gun is considered the best intermediate-caliber, dual purpose naval gun of World War II.  Lighter than the earlier Mk.28 version designed for battleships (available separately), the "Mark 32" version of the twin mount was designed specifically for aircraft carriers and cruisers and other ships where weight was an important consideration such as rebuilt pre-war battleships and various auxiliaries.  It has a noticeably different shape than the earlier Mk.28 Mount installed aboard fast battleships. 

Features:
  • accurate dimensions scaled from official US Navy blueprints and confirmed by photos and measurements taken from actual Twin Mounts
  • detailed armored viewfinder and rangefinder hoods
  • detailed mount captain blast hood
  • separate trunnions and barrels to allow the modeler to choose any realistic elevation
  • crew access hatches and maintenance hatches with hinge and bolt-head details
  • bolt-heads in accurate locations

Notice: this model is designed for Best Detail using "Fine Detail" acrylic plastic, the best material available producing exceptional detail and smooth surfaces.  "Fine Detail" acrylic plastic is a good choice for static display models.  "Fine Detail" acrylic plastic is comparatively brittle.  Therefore, it is not recommended for Radio Control models.  Compared to "White Natural Versatile Plastic", a kind of nylon available separately, "Fine Detail" acrylic plastic produces sharper edges, details that are more defined, and the surface is much smoother with this product.  "Fine Detail" acrylic plastic is sandable,  cuts easily, and is compatible with more kinds of paint.
