Product Description
Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/200

Contains two (2) Mk.37 directors with integrated SPG-25 radars.

The radar support frame is extremely fragile.  Please be cautious during handling and when separating the directors from the casting wafer.

Recommended for any 1/200 scale Iowa class model kit conversions to the battleships as they appeared later in their careers.

See a 1/200 scale USS New Jersey BB-62 model being built with this product (click here)

The Mk.37 Director with SPG-25 Radar were used post-World War Two on many US Navy warships.  This version has the later solid radar dish as seen from the 1960s and later.

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. They were part of an upgrade to improve tracking of aircraft.[1]

"The Director Officer also had a slew sight used to quickly point the director towards a new target.[22] 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."
