Product Description

Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/96     (1/8 inch = 1 foot)
 
The Mk.32 version of the 5"/38 cal. Twin Mount was installed aboard aircraft carriers and cruisers as well as rebuilt pre-war battships.  A Mk.28 mount for fast battleships is available separately.

 This model is designed for Best Cost using the least expensive printed material options.  A "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 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.  Lighter than the earlier Mk.28 version designed for battleships (available separately), the "Mark 32" version of the twin mount was designed specifically for aircraft carriers and cruisers and other ships where weight was an important consideration
such as rebuilt pre-war battleships and various auxiliaries.  It has a noticeably different shape than the earlier Mk.28 Mount installed aboard fast battleships.

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
