Set includes 36 lockers. Caution is recommended when removing the lockers from the sprue; acrylic plastic is more brittle than the polystyrene plastic found in injection-molded plastic model kits.
This set of highly detailed, 3D-printed models represents ready service ammunition lockers for 20mm Oerlikon cannons fit to World War Two-era US Navy warships. USS Missouri BB-63, for example, carried as many as 50 of these lockers in 1945.
Although there were many variations, this model is one of the most common of the larger types: 62" long x 24" wide x 26.5" high (not including stand). Scaled dimensions match drawings found in The Floating Drydock's highly recommended "Fletcher Class Destroyer Plan eBook" (click here).
