Product Description

Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/72

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

This 5"/38 cal Mk.30 single mount is designed with an upper, aft facet, specifically for John C. Butler class and Rudderow class destroyer escorts and the battleship USS Idaho BB-42.

Among naval historians, the US Navy 5"/38 caliber gun is considered the best intermediate-caliber, dual purpose naval gun of World War II.  Two 5-inch/38 Mk.30 single mounts were normally fitted to Rudderow and John C. Butler class destroyer escorts, one forward and one aft, as well as some Edsall and Buckley class ships and the battleship USS Idaho BB-42.

Features:
  • this multi-part, unassembled model kit can be made rotatable and the gun can be positioned at any elevation.
  • 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 turret base ring, sloped or flat, available separately

    From DestroyerHistory.org: "The Rudderow class TEV (Turbo Electric 5-inch) type first appeared in 1944. The design matched two 5-inch/38 cal. guns with a Buckley-class (TE) hull and 12,000 shp powerplant. It also introduced a low, enclosed bridge, which it shared with the John C. Butler class (WGT)....Seventy-two Rudderows were built; 69 were completed by the time of the surrender of Japan on 2 September 1945, two more followed later in September and one in November."
