Scale: 1/72

Recommended for: 
This accurate and highly detailed model kit represents the protective blast hood fit to the US Navy's World War Two-era Torpedo Mounts. 

Features:
  • overall dimensions accurately scaled from official US Navy drawings
  • details confirmed from careful study of surviving mounts aboard USS Kidd and USS Cassin Young
 
Torpedo mounts carrying this type of blast hood were the standard World War II-era US Navy torpedo mounts first fit to destroyers of the Benson/Gleaves class beginning in 1937. They continued to be the standard torpedo mount for the following Fletcher (DD-445) classAllen M. Sumner (DD-692) class, and Gearing (DD-710) class.  These ships mounted either one or two mounts.  Check your references to know how many mounts your model needs.

The Mk.14 and Mk.15 torpedo mounts launched 21-inch diameter Mk.15 torpedoes (not included). The Mk.15 Mount carried a drum-shaped blast shield installed to protect the operating crew from the gun blasts of a nearby 5"/38 caliber gun and twin 40mm Bofors.  Other than the blast shield, the Mk.14 and Mk.15 Mounts were identical.

    From Microworks.com: "In the battles of Vella Gulf and Cape St. George, destroyer attacks using torpedoes [launched from this mount] sank six enemy destroyers without losing a single man, with a [seventh] (the legendary Shigure) escaping only because a torpedo hitting her rudder failed to explode....U.S. destroyer torpedoes also accounted for the only "dreadnought"-type battleship ever sunk in action by surface launched torpedoes, the Fuso, during the Battle of Surigao Strait."
