Product Description

Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/48

Recommended for:

Among naval historians, the US Navy 5"/38 caliber gun is considered the best intermediate-caliber, dual purpose naval gun of World War II.  Mounted on several classes of warships (Fletcher, Benham, Sims, Bagley, Dunlap, Gridley, Benson/Gleaves, class destroyers and Garcia, Buckley and Butler class destroyer escorts), the "Heavyweight" version had a reinforced roof with distinctive "knuckle" that resisted blast from another 5-inch turret firing overhead.  

Of the five 5-inch/38 Mk.30 single mounts normally fitted to a Fletcher class destroyer, two "Heavyweights" were carried, one in the foremost position and one in the aft most position on the main deck, known there as "Mount 51" and "Mount 55".

This multi-part, unassembled model kit can be made rotatable and the gun can be positioned at any realistic elevation.

 Features:
  •  accurate asymmetrical gunhouse (turret)
  •  properly offset gun opening
  •  forward face stiffeners
  •  turret bottom supporting structure with bolt-head detail
  •  rear vent and alarm bell
  •  detailed turret base ring 
 
Customers report that this product, if printed in "Strong and Flexible Plastic", a kind of nylon, will have noticeable striations (print lines).  To smooth "Strong and Flexible" nylon plastic, apply thin layers of primer meant specifically for nylon then smooth the primer.  Use paints meant specifically for nylon.  Other paints may not adhere.  "Strong and Flexible" plastic is recommended for radio control models where strength and durability are more important than surface smoothness.  Simply Google "primer for nylon" and "paint for nylon" to find several good options.  

"Frosted Ultra Detail" acrylic plastic is another material option that does offer very smooth surfaces and much finer detail.  "Frosted Ultra Detail" acrylic plastic is recommended for static display models where surface smoothness and detail are important.  "Frosted Ultra Detail" plastic is relatively brittle and not recommended for radio control models.
