Product Description

Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/96     (1/8 inch = 1 foot)

Set includes three barrels.


Recommended to help build any Iowa class or Montana class battleship from: 
The 16-inch/50 Caliber Mark 7 Naval Rifle (cannon) was specifically designed for the Iowa class battleships of the U.S. Navy, and later intended for the even larger Montana class battleships.  This was the largest naval gun used operationally by any US Navy warship, ever.  The Iowa class carried nine of these weapons among three huge turrets.  The Montana class would have carried twelve of them, three each in four turrets.

Features:
  • three barrel set, enough to equip one turret
  • dimensions scaled from official US Navy blueprints and confirmed by measurements taken from actual barrels on the real ships
  • barrel bore is exactly 16 scale inches in diameter
  • barrel length is to the center of the trunnion, perfectly matched to 3D-printed turrets available separately
 
This set is available in different materials.  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.

From Wikipedia: "These guns were 50 calibers long—or 50 times their 16-inch (406 mm) bore diameter which makes the barrels 66.6 feet (20 m) long, from breechface to muzzle. Each gun weighed about 239,000 pounds (108,000 kg) without the breech, or 267,900 pounds (121,517 kg) with the breech. They fired projectiles weighing from 1,900 to 2,700 pounds (850 to 1,200 kg) at a maximum speed of 2,690 feet per second (820 m/s) with a range of up to 24 miles (39 km). At maximum range the projectile spent almost 1½ minutes in flight. Each turret required a crew of 79 men to operate. The turrets themselves cost US$1.4 million each, to which the cost of the guns had to be added."
