Product Description
Catalog (click here)

Scale: precisely 1/301

Set includes 2 mounts (turrets).

Recommended for: 
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 (more properly called "mounts") during World War II.

Of the five 5-inch/38 Mk.30 single mounts normally fitted to a Fletcher class destroyer, two "Double Knuckle" mounts 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". Fletcher class destroyers also carried three lightweight mounts of a slightly different shape (available separately). all located on top of the forward and aft deckhouses.  The three lightweights were known as Mounts 52, 53 and 54.

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

Features: 
  •  an asymmetrical gunhouse (turret)
  •  accurately offset gun opening
  •  accurately offset barrel (when looking at the front of the turret, the barrel should align to the RIGHT side of the opening)
  •  detailed turret bottom supporting structure
  •  rear vent
