Product Description
Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/200  

Includes 1 turret with barrels.

Recommended for:

This three-gun turret (more properly called a "gunhouse") represents Turrets number 1, 2 and 4 of the enormous 14"/50 caliber main battery of battleships USS Tennessee BB-43 as she appeared throughout her service life, and USS California BB-44 as she appeared from 1943-1945.  They are nearly identical to the gunhouses of the preceding New Mexico class battleships, differing only in the shape of the armored rangefinder hoods.  Turret #3 had no external ventilation trunks.  For a turret with no external ventilation trunks, click here.

These 3D-printed acrylic parts are designed to accurately represent features of the real turret based on official US Navy drawings.  These turrets are not 3D-printed copies of any plastic or resin kit's parts and therefore may be shaped and sized differently than those parts.  Some adjustment to your plastic kit's parts or other aftermarket parts such as photoetch or wood decks may be necessary for best fit. 

Features:
  • closed armored rangefinder viewport shutters
  • rooftop screwheads acurately sized, numbered and located
  • armored rangefinder hexhead bolt and screw details
  • bases for rooftop periscopes
  • accurately sized and shaped ventilation trunks for Turrets 1, 2 and 4.  Turret 3, the aft superfiring turret, did not have external vent trunks. For a turret with no external vent trunks, click here.
  • barrels, available separately, are grouped on a trunnion matched to these turrets to allow the modeler to set the position of the barrels to any realistic elevation from +30 degrees to -5 degrees, just like the real turrets
