These 3D-printed models were designed from official US Navy drawings.  They are scaled to match the dimensions of the real director.  They are not 3D-printed copies of any plastic or resin kit's parts, therefore, they may be shaped and sized differently than the parts of your kit.  Some adjustment to your plastic kit's parts or other aftermarket products such as photo-etch may be necessary for best fit.
