Product Description
Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/192    (1/16 inch = 1 foot)

Set includes 3 mounts (turrets) for Allen M. Sumner and Gearing class destroyers as they appeared in World War Two, before the addition of external stiffeners.

Recommended for:

This set of three accurately shaped and highly detailed 5"/38 cal. Mk.38 Mounts is intended for any 1/192 scale Sumner class or Gearing class ship model.

Note to builders of the Bluejcket Shipcrafter's USS Gearing kits:   The otherwise outstanding Bluejacket Shipcrafter's model kit of USS Gearing (click here) has the wrong type of 5"/38 cal. Twin Mounts.  The kit's mounts appear to be the earlier Mk.28s, which were designed for fast battleships and had a noticeably different shape, were larger, had different details, and were of a different kind of construction.  This set is the correct type of mount for your kit.

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 to allow the modeler to choose any realistic elevation from +85 degrees to -15 degrees, just like the real mount
  • detailed mount captain blast hood
  • crew access hatches and maintenance hatches with hinge and bolt-head details
  • bolt-heads accurately sized, number and all in accurate locations
 
These models are scaled from official US Navy drawings.  These models are not 3D-printed copies of any wood, plastic or resin model kit's parts therefore they may be sized and shaped differently.  Some adjustment to your kit's parts or other aftermarket products such as photo-etch may be necessary for best fit.

Among naval historians, the US Navy 5"/38 caliber gun is considered the best intermediate-caliber, dual purpose naval gun of World War II.  Lighter and squater than the earlier, heavier versions designed for battleships, aircraft carriers and cruisers, the "Mark 38" version of the twin mount was designed specifically for Sumner and Gearing class destroyers and other ships where weight was an important consideration.  This version also had differently shaped rangefinder hoods.
