Set includes 2 mounts (turrets) with barrels.

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 type was fit to several classes of warships and Coast Guard cutters.  This "Double Knuckle" or "Heavyweight" version had a reinforced roof with distinctive, second "knuckle" that resisted blast from another 5-inch turret firing overhead.  These were known as "Double Knuckle" mounts during World War II.

The late version, reproduced here, appeared sometime after 1942, had a different arrangement of stiffeners on the front of the gunhouse and additional fasteners on access hatches.  An alarm bell was often fitted to the rear of the mount.  This type of 5-inch/38 Mount is often seen on "square bridge" Fletchers such as USS Kidd DD-661.  

A set of "early version" mounts is available separately (click here).  Consult your references to know the correct type for your model.

Of the five 5-inch/38 Mk.30 single mounts normally fitted to a Fletcher class destroyer, two "Double Knuckle" mounts were carried, one in the fore-most position and one in the aft-most position on the main deck, known there as "Mount 51" and "Mount 55".

Features: 
  •  an asymmetrical gunhouse (turret)
  •  accurate offset gun opening
  •  can be made rotatable and the gun can be positioned at any elevation
  •  forward face stiffener configuration correct for the late mount
  •  detailed turret bottom supporting structure with accurately placed bolt-head detail
  •  rear vent and alarm bell
  •  detailed gun captain blast hood available separately
  •  detailed turret base ring, sloped or flat, available separately
