Product Description
Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/600

Set includes 4 directors.

Recommended for:
 
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.  

The "angle-back" Mk.37 director featured six observation hatches and three telescope port covers.  "Angle-backs" were fit to the aircraft carriers USS Saratoga CV-3, USS Hornet CV-8, battleships of the North Carolina and South Dakota classes, and USS Iowa BB-61 and USS New Jersey BB-62 when built, as well as many cruisers and destroyers. 

Many Mk.37 directors were modified to the latter "square-back" configuration which provided more interior space for additional radar equipment.  Following battle damage sustained in April, 1945, off Okinawa, one of USS North Carolina's MK.37 directors, the post-side midships director next to the forward funnel, was replaced with a "square-back" Mk.37 director.

These models are scaled from official US Navy drawings and detailed according to careful study of an angle-back director mounted to USS North Carolina BB-55.  These models are not 3D-printed copies of any plastic or resin model kit's parts therefore they may be sized and shaped differently.  Some adjustment to your kit's parts or other aftermarket products such as photo-etch may be necessary for best fit.
