Product Description

Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/125

Set contains 2 blast hoods.

Recommended for the Lindberg 1/125 scale “Blue Devil Destroyer” USS Melvin DD-680, Fletcher class.

These two scale model Blast Hoods compliment any 1/125 scale 5-inch/38 cal. Mount  (available separately).  On Fletcher class destroyers, blast hoods were normally fit only to the two mounts (turrets) on the main deck, the forward-most mount ("Mount 51") and the aft-most mount ("Mount 55").  The removable blast hood protected the Mount Captain, whose head and torso were exposed above the turret roof at the rear of the turret, from blast and heat effects from the firing of nearby guns.

This later type has bulges at the forward, bottom attachment location.  An early smooth-attachment point type is available separately (click here).  Please consult your references to know which type is correct for your model.

The model features detailed framing and rear slot for the Mount Captain's access hatch actuator.

These 3D-printed acrylic parts are designed to accurately represent features of the actual ship.  These are not 3D-printed copies of Lindberg plastic kit parts and therefore are not the same size and shape.  Some adjustment to your plastic kit's parts or other aftermarket parts such as photoetch may be necessary for best fit.  CA "super glue" will bond this acrylic part.
