Product Description
Catalog (click here)

Updated design!   More detail!

Scale: 1/500

Set includes 6 mounts (no barrels).  Aircraft Carrier and Cruiser Mounts (for battleships, choose Mk.28 mounts 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, heavier version designed for battleships, 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 the battleship USS Pennsylvania BB-38.  It has a slightly different shape than the earlier Mk.28 Mount.  

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
  • integrated trunnion with slots for barrels (barrels not included)
  • crew access hatches and maintenance hatches with hinge and bolt-head details
  • bolt-heads in accurate locations
