Product Description
Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/72

Updated design!  More detail!


Aircraft Carrier and Cruiser mounts (Mk. 28 mounts for fast battleships are available separately)

Recommended for: 
 
Designed for Best Cost using the most economical printed material options. Detail is less refined and thicker (minimum feature thickness is 1.0mm) than "Frosted Detail" plastics (available separately) permitting printing using more economical materials. Access panel hinge details, for example, will be softer. This option is ideal for Radio Control models where toughness and watertightness are more important factors than crisp, close-up detail.

A "Best Detail" version, which has a much better minimum feature thickness of just 0.3mm, is available separately (click here).

Notice: Customers report that this product, printed in Strong and Flexible Plastic (a kind of nylon), will have noticeable striations (print lines) requiring filling with primer to create a smooth surface. Strong and Flexible plastics do not sand easily. Frosted Detail plastic, available separately, is an acrylic-based photopolymer. We recommend using Frosted Detail plastic for detailed products such as static display models that don't face high stress or heat. Unlike Strong and Flexible plastic, the level of detail for Frosted Detail products is higher, it sands and cuts easily and accepts acrylic paints meant for plastics beautifully.

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 blueprints and confirmed by photos and measurements taken from actual Twin Mounts
  • detailed armored viewfinder and rangefinder hoods
  • separate trunnion 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
