Catalog (click here)

Updated design!   More detail!

Scale: 1/164. 
 Lindberg's box art erroneously states the scale of the kit as 1/170.  Sources indicate the true scale is 1/164.  This model is precisely scaled to fit the Lindberg kit.

Set includes 1 mount (turret), barrel and ring stand.

Recommended for the Lindberg 1/164 scale USS Carronade IFS-1 "Bobtail Cruiser" Missile Assault Ship

Among naval historians, the US Navy 5"/38 caliber gun is considered the best intermediate-caliber, dual purpose naval gun of World War II.  This type was installed on several classes of wartime and Cold War-era destroyers, destroyer escorts, inshore fire support ships (IFSs), landing ships medium (rocket) (LSM(R)s), auxiliaries and Coast Guard cutters as well as the battleship USS Idaho BB-42 and the nuclear-powered cruiser USS Long Beach CGN-9.  

Features: 
  • can be made rotatable and the gun can be positioned at any elevation
  • an accurately shaped asymmetrical gunhouse (turret)
  • accurate, offset gun opening
  • accurate, offset gun barrel (when facing the turret, the barrel is on the RIGHT - see photo)
  • detailed turret bottom supporting structure with accurately placed bolt-head detail
  • rear vent
