Product Description

Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/48

Contains 1 main deck turret, NO barrels.

This scale Twin 14 inch/45 caliber Gun Turret is designed for models of New York class battleships USS New York BB-34 and USS Texas BB-35.  These ships had five twin turrets.  This version represents one of the three turrets located on the main deck, Turrets Numbers 1, 3 & 5.

This product is printed in Strong and Flexible plastic, a kind of nylon.  It will have noticeable striations (print lines) that are difficult to smooth.  Applying thin layers of primer meant specifically for nylon, then smoothing the primer, is a technique that has worked for some modelers.

Features:
  • scaled from actual builders blueprints of the turret, dated 1914, and US Navy Bureau of Ordnance pamphlet O.P. 1112, 2nd Revision, dated January, 1945
  • measurements and location of features confirmed from wartime and present-day photos of USS Texas BB-35, preserved as a museum ship
  • accurate turret side and glacis curvature
  • properly raised turret roof panel
  • detailed turret roof access hatches with dog and hinge detail
  • turret roof rain gutter/deflector just aft of the glacis
  • subcaliber training device mounting plate located just aft of the glacis on the turret roof
  • accurately positioned and shaped gun openings with buckler (bloomer/blast bag) attachment frames
  • crew access hatch (aka "Armored Grating Hatch") on turret bottom overhang with hydraulic piston and hinge detail properly hinged to the front (unlike the hatch on superfiring turrets which is hinged to the rear)
