Scale 1/200

Set includes 2 mounts (turrets) with barrels.

Updated design!  More detail!

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.  The 5"/38 caliber Mark 30 Mod.41 mount was fit to several classes of US Navy and US Coast Guard ships.  This "Double Knuckle", or "Heavyweight" version was normally placed in locations where roof reinforcement was needed to protect the mount from blast effects of another mount above it. The additional reinforcement gave the roof its signature "Double Knuckle" appearance.

This "Early Version" of the Heavyweight 5"/38 caliber Mark 30 Single Mount was fit to destroyers and destroyer escorts through 1942.  It has different hatch and stiffener details than the late style mount, available separately (click here).  

Photos indicate that among the many ships that carried this "Early Version" were:
  • USS Fletcher  DD-445
  • USS Jenkins DD-446
  • USS Nicholas DD-449
  • USS O'Bannon DD-450
  • USS Chevalier DD-451
  • USS Halford DD-480
  • USS Charles Ausburne DD-570
  • Cuitlahuac (ex-USS John Rodgers DD-574)
  • USS Hammann  DD-412
  • USS Mustin DD-413
  • USS Benson DD-421
 
Of the five 5-inch/38 caliber Mk.30 single mounts normally fit to a Fletcher class destroyer, two "Double Knuckle" mounts were carried, both on the main deck, one forward (“Mount 51”) and one aft (“Mount 55").

Features:
  •  printable in various material with pricing according to the material desired
  •  asymmetrical gunhouse (turret)
  •  accurately offset gun opening
  •  can be made rotatable and the gun can be positioned to any realistic elevation
  •  detailed turret bottom supporting structure with accurately located bolt-head detail
  •  rear vent
