Product Description
Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/144

Set includes 2 blast hoods, no exterior ribs.  Blast hood with rib detail are available separately (click here).

Recommended for: 
These scale model Blast Hoods compliment any 1/144 scale 5-inch/38cal Mount (sold separately).  This variation, with no reinforcing ribs, was requested by a modeler.  A set of four ribbed blast hoods is available separately.

Among naval historians, the US Navy 5"/38 caliber gun is considered the best intermediate-caliber, dual purpose naval gun of World War II.  The removable Blast Hood protected the Mount Captain, whose head and torso was exposed above the turret roof at the rear of the turret, from blast and heat effects from the firing of nearby guns.

These 3D-printed acrylic parts are designed to accurately represent features of the actual ship based on official Navy blueprints.  These are not 3D-printed copies of Revell's plastic kit's parts and therefore are not the same size and shape.  Some adjustment to your plastic kit's parts or other aftermarket parts such as photoetch may be necessary for best fit.  CA "super glue" will bond this acrylic part to your plastic kit's deck.
