Product Description
Catalog (click here)

Scale 1/72

Set contains 2 blast hoods.

Recommended for:
 
These two models represent the blast hoods fixed to many types of 5"/38 cal. gun mounts (turrets) installed aboard US Navy warships since World War Two.  These hoods protectect the mount captain, who stood exposed inhis rooftop hatch, from the blast and heat effects of guns firing nearby and overhead.

On Fletcher class destroyers, for example, blast hoods were fit to two of the five gun mounts, the forward-most and aft-most mounts, Mount 51 and Mount 55, protecting them from the blast of the superfiring turrets nearest to them (see photo in carousel).

There were several types and variations of blast hoods, all generally of the same size and shape.  This design represents one of the most common types.  Overall dimensions and details were confirmed from study of an actual blast hood on the battleship USS North Carolina BB-55, preserved as a museum at Wilmington, North Carolina, USA.
