Product Description

Catalog (click here)

Updated design!   More detail!

Scale: 1/72


Recommended for:

Designed for Best Cost using the most economical printed material options.  Detail is less refined and thicker (minimum feature thickness is 1.0mm) permitting printing using more economical materials.  A “Best Detail version” is available separately (click here).

Notice: Customers report that this product, printed in Strong and Flexible Plastic (a kind of nylon), will have noticeable striations (print lines).  To create smoother surfaces, if desired, apply thin layers of primer meant specifically for nylon, then smooth the primer.  "Strong and Flexible" nylon plastics do not sand easily.  Because of its durability, "Strong and Flexible" nylon plastic is recommended for radio control models.  

Frosted Detail acrylic plastic, a material option available separately, is an acrylic-based photopolymer that does offer very smooth surfaces. We recommend using "Frosted Detail" plastic for static display models where surface smoothness and fine detail are more important than durability.  Unlike "Strong and Flexible" plastic, the level of detail for "Frosted Detail" acrylic products is higher, it sands and cuts easily and accepts acrylic paints meant for plastics beautifully.

Among naval historians, the US Navy 5"/38 caliber gun is considered the best intermediate-caliber, dual purpose naval gun of World War II.  Mounted on several classes of warships and Coast Guard cutters, the "Heavyweight" version had a reinforced roof with distinctive, second "knuckle" that resisted blast from another 5-inch turret firing overhead.  These were known as "Double Knuckle" turrets during World War II.

Compared to the "early version", the late version, reproduced here, appeared sometime after 1942, had a different arrangement of stiffeners on the front of the gunhouse and additional fasteners on access hatches.  An alarm bell was often fitted to the rear of the mount.  This type of 5-inch/38 Mount is often seen on "square bridge" Fletchers such as USS Kidd DD-661.  

Of the five 5-inch/38 Mk.30 single mounts normally fitted to a Fletcher class destroyer, two "Heavyweights" were carried, one in the foremost position and one in the aft most position on the main deck, known there as "Mount 51" and "Mount 55".

This multi-part, unassembled model kit can be made rotatable and the gun can be positioned at any elevation.

Features: 
  •  an asymmetrical gunhouse (turret)
  •  accurate offset gun opening
  •  forward face stiffeners
  •  detailed turret bottom supporting structure with accurately placed bolt-head detail
  •  rear vent
  •  detailed gun captain blast hood available separately
  •  detailed turret base ring, sloped or flat, available separately
