Product Description

Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/48   (1/4 inch = 1 foot)

Set contains four torpedo warhead insets.  Also available: 
Recommended for: 
These parts represent the exposed warhead of the Bliss-Leavitt Mk.8 torpedo fired from US Navy PT boats, among other USN and Royal Navy Lend-Lease-procured vessels, during World War Two.  When loaded into the torpedo tube, the Mk.8's domed warhead was exposed.  A good reference for PT boats can be found on NavSource (click here).

Features:
  • precisely scaled, outer diameter of exactly 21 scale inches
  • triangular end-cap, a plate installed in the field to prevent the torpedo from falling out of the tube in rough seas (install the warhead so that one of the plates corners points up)
 
This product is also available in several finishes of durable, real stainless steel, recommended for a true metallic appearance and rugged radio control operation.

These parts are not 3D-printed copy of any plastic model kit's parts.  Therefore, it may not be the same size or shape of your plastic kit's parts.  Depending on which plastic kit you own, some adjustment of the plastic kit's parts may be needed for best fit.

From Wikipedia: "The Bliss–Leavitt Mark 8 torpedo was the United States Navy's first 21-inch by 21-foot torpedo.[1] Although introduced prior to World War I, most of its combat use was by PT boats in World War II. The torpedo was originally designed in 1911 by Frank McDowell Leavitt of the E. W. Bliss Company and entered full mass production in 1913 at the Naval Torpedo Station in Newport, Rhode Island. It was deployed on destroyers and battleships during World War I and cruisers built in the 1920s. All US battleships and most cruisers had their torpedo tubes removed by 1941. The Mark 8 remained in service through World War II on older destroyers, primarily the Wickes and Clemson classes. It also equipped PT boats early in World War II, but was replaced by the Mark 13 torpedo on most of these in mid-1943.

"Under the Lend-Lease Act, about 600 Mark 8 torpedoes were issued to the United Kingdom for use with 50 pre-1930 destroyers it received under the Destroyers for Bases Agreement.[1]"
