Product Description

Catalog (click here)

Set contains 4 breech doors (2 port and 2 starboard).

Scale: 1/48   (1/4 inch = 1 foot)  Outer diameter of tube = 12.1mm.  The outer diameter of your model's torpedo tubes should be slightly smaller than this to match well.


Recommended for: 
This set of four models represents the doors on the aft end of Mk.18 Torpedo Tubes mounted to many World War Two US Navy PT Boats such as the famous PT-109 commanded by then-Lieutenant John F. Kennedy.  The Mk.18 Torpedo Tube was used early in the war until replaced by roll-off racks for aircraft-type Mk.13 torpedoes.  A good reference for PT boats can be found on NavSource (click here).

This model kit is not a 3D-printed copy of any plastic model kit's parts.  It is designed from actual builder’s blueprints.  Therefore, it may not be the same size or shape of your plastic kit's parts.  Some adjustment of the plastic kit's parts may be needed for best fit.

Features:
  • accurately scaled from scans of original Electric Boat Company manufacturer's blueprints dated 3 December 1942.
  • details confirmed from careful study of period photographs
  • hinges properly positioned for port tubes and the starboard tubes (hinges go on the inboard side of the door) 
  • accurate, detailed, tube-top firing combustion chamber
  • accurate breech door hinge
  • exterior stiffener rings properly sized and located
  • bolt heads accurately scaled in their proper position, randomly turned for realism
