Product Description

Catalog (click here)

Scale 1/72

Aircraft Carrier and Cruiser mounts (Mk.28 mounts for fast battleships are available separately)

Designed for Best Detail using the finest 3D printed material. A "Best Cost" version is available separately (click here).

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.  Lighter than the earlier, heavier version designed for battleships, the "Mark 32" version of the twin mount was designed specifically for aircraft carriers and cruisers and other ships where weight was an important consideration. It has a slightly different shape than the earlier Mk.28 Mount.  

Features:
  • accurate dimensions scaled from official US Navy blueprints and confirmed by photos and measurements taken from actual Twin Mounts
  • detailed armored viewfinder and rangefinder hoods
  • separate trunnion with integrated barrels to allow the modeler to choose any realistic elevation
  • integrated barbette fixed to separate turret bottom plate (shown inverted)
  • crew access hatches and maintenance hatches with hinge and bolt-head details
  • bolt-heads in accurate locations
