Product Description
Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/700

Set includes 3 turrets (no barrels).  A set of barrels is available separately (click here). 

A set of turrets with barrels is also available separately (click here).


Recommended for:
 
This set of three-gun turrets (properly called a "gunhouse") was specifically designed for the Iowa class battleships of the U.S. Navy, and later intended for the even larger Montana class battleships.  Each turret mounted three 16-inch/50 caliber Mark 7 naval rifles.  This was the largest naval turret and gun used operationally by any US Navy warship.  The Iowa class carried three of these huge turrets.  The Montana class would have carried four.  A set of 4 Montana class turrets is available separately (click here).

Features of this multi-part, scale model kit:
  • dimensions scaled from scans of original builder's blueprints and confirmed by measurements taken from actual gunhouses on the real ships
  • armored rangefinder hexhead bolt and domed screw details
  • rooftop screwhead detail, properly numbered, sized and positioned
  • asymmetrically positioned underside ventilation trunks (as-built 1943-1945 configuration)
  • asymmetrically positioned underside crew access hatches
 
These turrets are precisely scaled to match the dimensions of the real turrets as recorded in official Navy blueprints.  They are not 3D-printed copies of any resin or plastic model ship parts and therefore are likely to be differently shaped and sized than the turrets found in your plastic or resin kit.  Some adjustment to your kit's parts or any aftermarket items such as photoetch railings may be necessary for best fit.

This turret is suitable for Iowa class battleships:
  • BB-61 USS Iowa
  • BB-62 USS New Jersey
  • BB-63 USS Missouri
  • BB-64 USS Wisconsin
  • BB-65 USS Kentucky (not completed)
  • BB-66 USS Illinois (not completed)
 
Regarding the Mark 7 gun, 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."
