Product Description

Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/96   (1/8 inch = 1 foot)

Contains 1 director.

Recommended for:
 
The US Navy Mark 37 Director was used to control the fire of the 5”/38 caliber dual purpose batteries against both aircraft and surface targets, to direct the fire of starshells for the illumination of surface targets and to position the searchlights.  

This early "Square-back" Mk.37 director featured five observation hatches and three telescope port covers.   Many of these Mk.37 directors were modified to a later configuration that had a shielded position for the director captain.  

Depending upon the specific ship you are modeling and the time you wish to represent, you may need the Late Mk.37, available separately.
