The US Navy Mark 37 Director was used to control the fire of the 5”/38 caliber dual purpose batteries against both aircraft and surface targets, to direct the fire of starshells for the illumination of surface targets and to position the searchlights.
This model represents the "Square-back" Mk.37 director normally fit with two boxy extensions on the rear shield for equipment associated with the Mk.12 and Mk.22 radars. This director featured five observation hatches and three telescope port covers. Many of these Mk.37 directors were modified to a later configuration (available separately, click here) that had a shielded position for the director captain.
These 3D-printed acrylic parts are designed to accurately represent features of the actual ship based on official Navy blueprints. These are not 3D-printed copies of any wood, resin or plastic kit's parts and therefore may not be the same size and shape. Some adjustment to your kit's parts or other aftermarket parts such as photoetch may be necessary for best fit.
