Product Description
Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/144

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.  These directors were commonly installed on many classes of US Navy and US Coast Guard ships from World War II through the Vietnam War.  Some ships of the Royal Navy carried this director including the Royal Navy's last battleship, HMS Vanguard.

Unlike the early "square-back" design (available separately, click here), the late "square-back" Mk.37 directors featured a shielded, open director captain position (aka a "Control Officer's Cockpit"), three observation hatches instead of five, 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. 

These directors originally carried Mk. 12/22 radars (not included).  It is believed that these "Square-back" directors included various modifications known as Mods 8 through 13 and 17.
These 3D-printed acrylic parts are designed to accurately represent features of the actual ship based on official Navy blueprints.  These are not 3D-printed copies of Revell's plastic kit's parts and therefore are not the same size and shape.  Some adjustment to your plastic kit's parts or other aftermarket parts such as photoetch may be necessary for best fit.  CA "super glue" will bond this acrylic part to your polystyrene plastic kit.
