Product Description
Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/192   (1/16 inch = 1 foot)

Set includes 2 mounts (turrets) with barrels.

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.  Mounted on several classes of warships and Coast Guard cutters, the 5"/38 Mk.30 Mod.41 version had a reinforced roof with distinctive, second "knuckle" that resisted blast from another 5-inch turret firing overhead.  These were known as "Double Knuckle" or "Heavyweight" mounts during World War II.

Compared to the "early version", the late version, reproduced here, appeared sometime after 1942, had a different arrangement of stiffeners on the front of the gunhouse and additional fasteners on access hatches.  The late type of 5-inch/38 Mount is often seen on "square bridge" Fletchers such as USS Kidd DD-661.  

A set of early "double knuckle" mounts is available separately (click here).  Consult your references to know the correct type for your model.

A set of late "single knuckle" mounts is also available (click here).

Of the five 5-inch/38 Mk.30 single mounts normally fitted to a Fletcher class destroyer, two "double knuckle" mounts were carried, one in the foremost position and one in the aft most position on the main deck, known there as "Mount 51" and "Mount 55".

This multi-part, unassembled model kit can be made rotatable and the gun can be positioned at any elevation.

Features: 
  •  an asymmetrical gunhouse (turret)
  •  accurate offset gun opening
  •  forward face stiffeners
  •  detailed turret bottom supporting structure with accurately placed bolt-head detail
  •  rear vent and alarm bell
  •  detailed gun captain blast hood available separately
  •  detailed turret base ring, sloped or flat, available separately
