Product Description

Scale: 1/144

Contains one (1) Mk.37 director with integrated Mk.25 radar.

Recommended for the Revell 1/144 Fletcher class destroyer models converted to any of the ships as  they appeared later in their careers.

The radar support frame is extremely fragile.  Please be cautious during handling.

The Mk.37 Director with Mk.25 Radar were used post-World War Two on many US Navy warships such as the Iowa class battleships, Forrest Sherman class destroyer USS Turner Joy DD-951, and Sumner class destroyer USS Laffey DD-724, preserved as museum ships.  

This version has the open radar dish.  A version with the solid dish is available separately.

Some part cleanup will be necessary.  The 3D printing process uses a waxy substance to support certain part features during the printing process.  Although the parts are cleaned by Shapeways, some waxy residue may remain.  It can be safely removed with water and a mild aqueous detergent like "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.  

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

From Wikipedia: "The function of the Mark 37 Director, which resembles a turret with "ears" rather than guns, was to track the present position of the target in bearing, elevation, and range. To do this, it had optical sights (the rectangular windows or hatches on the front), an optical rangefinder (the tubes or ears sticking out each side), and later models, fire control radar antennas. They were part of an upgrade to improve tracking of aircraft.[1]

"The Director Officer also had a slew sight used to quickly point the director towards a new target.[22] Up to four Mark 37 Gun Fire Control Systems were installed on battleships. On a battleship, the director is protected by 1.5 inches of armor, and weighs 21 tons."
