Product Description
Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/1250

Set includes 12 mounts (turrets), no barrels, for aircraft carriers, cruisers and rebuilt pre-war battleships (e.g. USS Pennsylvania BB-38).  For fast battleships, choose Mk.28 mounts which have a slightly different shape (click here).  Caution is recommended when removing the directors from the sprue; acrylic plastic is brittle.

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.  Compared to the earlier Mk.28 twin-gun mounts (turrets) designed for fast battleships, this set of 3D-printed models represents the later Mk.32 mount which was lighter, slightly differently shaped, and designed for aircraft carriers, re-built pre-war battleships and cruisers where weight was an important consideration.

Features:
  • accurate dimensions scaled from official US Navy blueprints
  • detailed armored viewfinder and rangefinder hoods
  • slots for barrels (barrels not included - too fine to print)
  • integrated trunnions set to +5 degrees (loading angle)
  • crew access hatches and maintenance hatches with hinge and bolt-head details
  • bolt-heads in accurate locations
  • roof-top mount captain access hatch
 
These mounts are precisely scaled to match the dimensions of the real mounts as recorded in official Navy blueprints.  They are not 3D-printed copies of any plastic model ship parts and therefore are likely to be differently shaped and sized than the mounts found in your plastic or resin kit.  Some adjustment to your kit's parts or any aftermarket items such as photoetch railings may be necessary for best fit.
