Product Description

Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/350

Set contains 2 mounts (turrets).

Recommended for:
 
These two models represent the US Navy's 5 inch, 38 caliber single mount.  This "Heavyweight", or "Double Knuckle" version, was normally placed in locations where additional turret roof reinforcement was required as protection from the blast of guns firing overhead.  Fletcher class destroyers, when built, carried two of these mounts, both located on the main deck, one extreme forward and one extreme aft, known as Mounts 51 and 55.  

To complete your Fletcher model, you also need the three mounts located on the deckhouses (Mounts 52, 53 and 54).  They were "Single Knuckle" lightweight mounts (click here) of a slightly different shape (available separately).

Features: 
  • overall dimensions made from official US Navy blueprints
  • an asymmetrical gunhouse (turret)
  • accurately offset gun opening
  • accurately offset barrel (when looking at the front of the turret, the barrel should align to the RIGHT side of the opening)
  • can be made rotatable and the gun can be positioned at any realistic elevation.
  • detailed turret bottom supporting structure
  • rear vent and alarm bell 
These 3D-printed mounts are designed to match the overall dimensions of features of the real mounts as recorded in official Navy blueprints.  They are not copies of any injection molded plastic or resin kits' parts and therefore may be differently shaped and sized.  Some adjustment to your kit, or other aftermarket products such as photoetch, may be necessary for best fit.
