This model turret was designed from Bureau of Ordnance drawing O.P. 1112 (2nd Revision) dated January 15, 1945 as well as drawings by Alan B. Chesley modified to match high-resolution photos of the actual turrets obtained from the National Archives.

  • detailed rangefinder hoods with closed viewports
  • detailed turret roof periscopes
  • correct number and position of barbette apron gusset plates
  • to-scale thickness of glacis
  • properly shaped gun openings
  • correctly shaped buckler (bloomer/blastbag) attachment collars on glacis
  • barrels integrated with a trunnion printed separately as one unit to permit the modeler to select any realistic elevation from -5 degrees to +30 degrees, just like the real guns and sleeve
  • trunnion accurately positioned within the gunhouse according to US Navy O.P. 1112 providing a correct center of rotation and distance to muzzle from the gunhouse
  • barrels hollow all the way through
