Product Description
Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/128   (3/32 inch = 1 foot)

Recommended for the Fleetscale 1/128 scale Iowa class Battleship Hull

Set contains 2 mounts (turrets) with barrels for fast battleships.  For aircraft carriers, cruisers and re-built pre-war battleships, choose Mk.32 mounts (click here).

Features:
  • accurate dimensions scaled from official US Navy drawings and confirmed by photos and measurements taken from actual Twin Mounts
  • detailed armored viewfinder and rangefinder hoods
  • detailed rangerfinder shutter actuator arms
  • separate trunnions with integrated barrels to allow the modeler to choose any realistic elevation
  • crew access hatches and maintenance hatches with hinge and bolt-head details
  • bolt-heads in accurate locations
 
Among naval historians, the US Navy 5"/38 caliber gun is considered the best intermediate-caliber, dual purpose naval gun of World War II.  Unlike later lighter-weight marks intended for aircraft carriers, cruisers and destroyers, the 76-ton "Mark 28" version of the twin mount was designed specifically for fast battleships and was mounted to ships of the North Carolina Class, South Dakota Class, and Iowa Class.  The externally identical Mk.29 mount was fit to early Atlanta class light anti-aircraft cruisers.  

Designed for:
  • BB-55  USS North Carolina
  • BB-56  USS Washington
  • BB-57  USS South Dakota
  • BB-58  USS Indiana
  • BB-59  USS Massachusetts
  • BB-60  USS Alabama
  • BB-61  USS Iowa
  • BB-62  USS New Jersey
  • BB-63  USS Missouri
  • BB-64  USS Wisconsin
  • BB-65  USS Illinois (not completed)
  • BB-66  USS Kentucky (not completed)
