Product Description
Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/200

Set contains 2 turrets.

Recommended for: 
Until late 1941, the Lexington class aircraft carriers USS Lexington CV-2 and USS Saratoga CV-3 carried four twin 8"/55 caliber turrets.  The upper two turrets were fit with rangefinders.  The lower two turrets were not.  This set contains one of each type of highly detailed, 8"/55 cal. Twin Turrets to help the modeler accurize any 1/200 scale USS Lexington or USS Saratoga paper model kit.  Two sets will be needed to complete one model.

These turrets are not suitable for models of US Navy cruisers of World War Two.  Those ships carried 8"/55 cal. turrets of a different design (available separately).

Features:
  • overall dimensions accurately scaled from US Navy drawings
  • accurately shaped armored rangefinder hoods
  • six crew access doors with raised hinge, rain deflector and dog details
  • 158 hex-head exterior bolts properly positioned, sized and correctly placed according to photos of the actual turrets
  • separate trunnion, slotted for your favorite brass barrels (barrels not included) to allow you to position the guns to any realistic elevation from -5 degrees to +40 degress just like the real turret
  • turret-back shell ejector ports
  • heavy turret-bottom supporting structure per photos of the actual turrets

From Wikipedia: "The 8"/55 caliber gun (spoken "eight-inch-fifty-five-caliber") formed the main battery of United States Navyheavy cruisers and two early aircraft carriers. United States naval gun terminology indicates the gun barrel had an internal diameter of 8 inches (203 mm), and the barrel was 55 calibers long (barrel length is 8 inch × 55 = 440 inches or 11 meters).[3]

"Mark 9: These built-up guns weighed about 30 tons including a liner, tube, jacket, and five hoops. A down-swingWelin breech block was closed by compressed air from the gas ejector system. Loading with two silk bags each containing 45-pounds (20 kg) of smokeless powder gave a 260-pound (120 kg) projectile a velocity of 2800 feet per second (850 m/s).[1] Range was 31,860 yd (29,130 m) at the maximum elevation of 41 degrees.[1][4]

"Mark 14: These guns were similar to Mark 9, with the same shell weight and maximum range,[4] with a smaller chamber and rifling twist increased from 1 in 35 to 1 in 25 in a chromium-plated bore."
