Product Description
Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/192   (1/16 inch = 1 foot) 

Set includes 3 mounts (turrets) with barrels.

Updated design!  More detail!


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.  This type was installed on several classes of destroyers, destroyer escorts and Coast Guard cutters as well as the battleship USS Idaho BB-42 and the nuclear-powered cruiser USS Long Beach CGN-9.  

The 5"/38 cal. Mk.30 Mod.60 "Lightweight" or "Single Knuckle" version was normally placed in locations where roof reinforcement was not required.  The late version, reproduced here, appeared sometime after 1942, had no stiffeners on the front of the gunhouse and additional fasteners on access hatches.  An alarm bell was often fitted to the rear of the mount.  This type of 5-inch/38 Mount is often seen on "square bridge" Fletchers such as USS Kidd DD-661.  


The "early version" is available separately (click here).  Consult your refrences to know the correct type for your model.

A set of late "double knuckle" mounts is also available (click here).


Of the five 5-inch/38 caliber Mk.30 single mounts normally fitted to a Fletcher class destroyer, three "single knuckle" mounts were carried, all mounted on top of deckhouses in superfiring positions, one forward (“Mount 52”) and two aft (“Mount 53” and "Mount 54").

Features: 
  •  accurately shaped, asymmetrical gunhouse (turret)
  •  offset gun opening
  •  can be made rotatable and the gun can be positioned at any elevation
  •  detailed turret bottom supporting structure
  •  rear vent and alarm bell
  •  detailed gun captain blast hood, available separately
  •  detailed turret base ring, sloped or flat, available separately

  • Bagley
  • Benham
  • Benson
  • Buckley
  • Dunlap
  • Fletcher 
  • Garcia
  • German destroyer class 119
