Product Description
Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/128   (3/32 inch = 1 foot)

Set includes 2 mounts (turrets) with barrels.  For Aircraft Carriers, rebuilt pre-war Battleships and Cruisers.  Fast battleship Mk.28 mounts are available separately (click here).

Among naval historians, the US Navy 5"/38 caliber gun is considered the best intermediate-caliber, dual purpose naval gun of World War II.  Lighter than the earlier, heavier version designed for battleships, the "Mark 32" version of the twin mount was designed specifically for aircraft carriers and cruisers and other ships where weight was an important consideration.  It has a slightly different shape than the earlier Mk.28 Mount.

Features:
  • accurate dimensions scaled from official US Navy drawings and confirmed by photos and measurements taken of actual Twin Mounts
  • detailed armored viewfinder and rangefinder hoods
  • separate trunnions with integrated barrels to allow the modeler to choose any realistic elevation
  • crew access hatches and maintenance hatches with hinge and bolt-head details
  • bolt-heads accurately sized and located
