This accurately shaped and highly detailed model represents the 8 inch-55 caliber triple-gun turret of the US Navy's Baltimore class and Oregon City class heavy cruisers as they appeared during the Vietnam War.

Features:

  • designed according to official US Navy Bureau of Ordnance publication O.P. 1112 dated 15 January 1945

  • detailed left-side rangefinder and rooftop viewfinder hoods
  • accurately sized, positioned and numbered rangefinder hood bolt-head details
  • blast bag (also known as "buckler" or "bloomer") attachment rings
