Product Description
Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/96    (1/8 inch = 1 foot)

Fast Battleship Turrets - Best Cost, Least Expensive Printed Materials.

Aircraft carrier and cruiser Mk.32 mounts available separately.  "Best Detail" design available separately (click here). 

Recommended for: 
This version is designed for Best Cost using the more economical "Strong and Flexible" nylon plastics.  This material is very durable and waterproof, perfect for Radio Control models.  When compared to Frosted Detail acrylic plastic version, available separately, sharp edges may appear less defined and more rounded when printed.  Being nylon, this version is generally not sandable and fewer types of paint will adhere to it.  Care is recommended in choosing a paint that will adhere to, and fully cure upon, nylon.

Customers report that this product, if printed in Strong and Flexible Plastic (a kind of nylon) instead of Frosted Detail plastic (a kind of acrylic), will have noticeable striations (print lines).  Applying thin layers of primer meant specifically for nylon can help smooth surfaces.  Google "primer for nylon" and "paint for nylon" to find good options.

Among naval historians, the US Navy 5"/38 caliber gun is considered the best intermediate-caliber, dual purpose naval gun of World War II.  Unlike later lighter-weight marks intended for aircraft carriers, cruisers and destroyers, the 76-ton "Mark 28" version of the twin mount was designed specifically for battleships of the North Carolina class, South Dakota class, and Iowa class.  This mark was likely the type mounted to early Atlanta class cruisers.

Features:
  • accurate dimensions scaled from official US Navy blueprints and confirmed by photos and measurements taken from actual Twin Mounts
  • detailed armored viewfinder and rangefinder hoods
  • separate trunnions with integrated barrels to allow the modeler to choose any realistic elevation
  • crew access hatches and maintenance hatches with hinge and bolt-head details
  • bolt-heads in accurate locations
