Product Description
Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/350

Set includes 4 directors.  Caution is recommended when removing the directors from the sprue; acrylic plastic is more brittle than the polystyrene plastic found in injection-molded plastic model kits.
 
The US Navy Mark 37 Director was used to control the fire of the 5”/38 caliber dual purpose batteries against both aircraft and surface targets, to direct the fire of starshells for the illumination of surface targets and to position the searchlights.  This early "square-back" Mk.37 director featured five observation hatches and three telescope port covers.   Many of these Mk.37 directors were modified to later configurations. Some destroyers of the Sims, Benson and Gleaves classes were fit with this type of director.  Please check your references to know if this "square-back" type, or the earlier "angle-back" type (click here) is correct for your Sims, Benson or Gleaves class destroyer model.  Some battleships of the Iowa class were retrofit with a boxier Mk.37 director when modernized in the 1990s (click here).
