Product Description
Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/96      (1/8 inch = 1 foot)

Contains 1 director.

Recommended for: 
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.  

Unlike the earlier Square-back design, late "Square-back" Mk.37 Directors featured a shielded, open director captain position (aka a "Control Officer's Cockpit"), three observation hatches 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.  

Depending on the specific ship you are modeling and the time period you wish to represent, you may need the Early Mk.37 Director, available separately.
