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).

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
 
Notice: this model is designed for Best Cost using the more economical "White Natural Versatile Plastic", a kind of nylon.  This material is waterproof and durable, a very good choice for Radio Control models where durability is important.  When compared to "Fine Detail" acrylic plastic, available separately, sharp edges appear less defined and more rounded when printed.  Being nylon, "White Natural Versatile Plastic" is generally not sandable and fewer types of paint will adhere to it.  Care is recommended in choosing a paint that will adhere to, and fully cure upon, nylon.  Google "paint for nylon" and "primer for nylon" to find several good choices.

Customers report that "White Natural Versatile Plastic", when compared to "Fine Detail" acrylic plastic, will have noticeable striations (print lines).  To help smooth "White Natural Versatile Plastic" surfaces, apply thin layers of primer meant specifically for nylon.  Allow the primer to harden. Then smooth the hardened primer.
