This box set includes our ‘Naval Gun Load’ and ‘PRR F22 Flatcars 3-Pak’ kits at a special price… a $20.00 Savings !!!
The ‘Naval Gun Load’ kit is based on the Mark VII Naval Gun designed in 1939 and first used aboard Iowa-Class Battleships during World War II. Measuring 16" in diameter, these guns could fire a 2,400 lbs projectile up to 24 miles. They were last fired in combat during the 1991 Persian Gulf War. Each of these 68 foot guns weigh nearly 270,000 lbs and were shipped (breech first) across two(2) heavy weight flatcars with a third flatcar used as an idler. Many of these guns were manufactured by Bethlehem Steel in Pennsylvania and transported via the Pennsylvania Railroad across three(3) F22 flatcars.
The ‘Pennsylvania Railroad (PRR) F22’ kit is based on a wood-decked 30 foot heavy-duty flatcar that had a loading capacity of nearly 200,000 lbs when upgraded to the Crown 2F-F1 cast steel trucks modeled in this kit. These flatcars were originally designed in 1913 (drawings are dated 11-21-13) and, at their peak in the 1940's, there were over 100 in use on the Pennsylvania Railroad (PRR) roster with some of them surviving into the 1960's.
This box set also includes full-color illustrated instructions, phosphor bronze rods, a ‘DO NOT HUMP’ placard sheet, photo-etched stirrups & cut-levers, brass car weights, Micro-Trains brake wheels & body-mounted couplers, Fox Valley metal wheel sets and a PRR F22 decal sheet that features nine(9) verified road numbers, pertinent car data and prototypical reporting marks.
