Product Description
Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/96   (1/8 inch = 1 foot)

Set contains parts for 2 mounts (turrets).

Mk.28 Mounts for Fast Battleships - Best Detail, Best Printed Material.  Aircraft carrier and Cruiser Mk.32 Mounts available separately.  "Best Cost" Mk.28 design is available separately (click here). 

Recommended for: 
Among naval historians, the US Navy 5"/38 caliber gun is considered the best intermediate-caliber, dual purpose naval gun of World War II.  Unlike later lighter-weight marks intended for aircraft carriers, cruisers and destroyers, the 76-ton "Mark 28" version of the twin mount was designed specifically for battleships and was mounted on ships of the North Carolina class, South Dakota class, and Iowa class.  This mark was likely the type mounted to early Atlanta class cruisers.

Features:
  • accurate dimensions scaled from official US Navy blueprints and confirmed by photos and measurements taken from actual Twin Mounts
  • detailed armored viewfinder and rangefinder hoods
  • detailed mount captain blast hood
  • 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 in accurate locations
 
Notice: this model is designed for Best Detail using "Fine Detail" acrylic plastic, the best material available producing exceptional detail and smooth surfaces.  "Fine Detail" acrylic plastic is a good choice for static display models.  "Fine Detail" acrylic plastic is comparatively brittle.  Therefore, it is not recommended for Radio Control models.  Compared to "White Natural Versatile Plastic", a kind of nylon available separately, "Fine Detail" acrylic plastic produces sharper edges, details that are more defined, and the surface is much smoother with this product.  "Fine Detail" acrylic plastic is sandable,  cuts easily, and is compatible with more kinds of paint.
