Scale: 1/192 (1/16 inch = 1 foot)
Set contains 2 directors.
The radar support frame is extremely fragile. Please be cautious during handling and when separating the directors from the protective casting box.
The Mk.37 Director with Mk.25 Radar were used post-World War Two on many US Navy warships. This version has the later solid radar dish. Unfortunately, the earlier style "open" radar dish cannot be printed in this scale.
From Wikipedia: "The function of the Mark 37 Director, which resembles a turret with "ears" rather than guns, was to track the present position of the target in bearing, elevation, and range. To do this, it had optical sights (the rectangular windows or hatches on the front), an optical rangefinder (the tubes or ears sticking out each side), and later models, fire control radar antennas...
"The Director Officer also had a slew sight used to quickly point the director towards a new target. Up to four Mark 37 Gun Fire Control Systems were installed on battleships. On a battleship, the director is protected by 1.5 inches of armor, and weighs 21 tons."
