Product Description

Scale: 1/72

Set contains two (2) blast hoods

Recommended for: 

 

This scale model Blast Hood compliments any 1/72 scale 5-inch/38cal Mount (sold separately).

Among naval historians, the US Navy 5"/38 caliber gun is considered the best intermediate-caliber, dual purpose naval gun of World War II.  The removable Blast Hood protected the Mount Captain, whose head and torso was exposed above the turret roof at the rear of the turret, from blast and heat effects from the firing of nearby guns.

The model features detailed framing and rear slot for the Mount Captain's access hatch actuator.

Some part cleanup will be necessary.  During the 3D printing process, a waxy substance is used to support certain part features.  Although the parts are cleaned by Shapeways afterwards, some waxy residue may remain.  It can be safely removed with water and a mild aqueous detergent like "Dawn" dishwashing detergent, baby shampoo (no conditioner), or "Simple Green" using an old, soft toothbrush, Q-tips or pipe cleaners.  Customers report that "Bestine" and "Goo Gone" also work well.

During the printing process, liquid resin is cured by ultraviolet light.  Microscopic bits of resin may remain uncured.  Let your parts sit in direct sunlight for a few hours to fully cure the resin.  After your parts have fully cured, careful use of an inexpensive "air eraser" emitting common household baking soda can help smooth surfaces or remove unwanted frost without harming detail prior to painting.  An air eraser, similar to an airbrush but much cheaper, can be found on Amazon.com.  Models by Harbor Freight and Paasche are popular.

Water-based acrylic paints meant for plastics is strongly recommended.  Other paints, especially enamels, may not cure on Frosted Detail 3D-printed plastics.
