These accurately sized, shaped and highly detailed models represent the Mark 19 Gun Fire Directors found on many US Navy battleships and cruisers from 1941-1942. They are famously featured on all of the battleships present at Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941 such as USS Arizona BB-39.
Overall dimensions match scaled drawings by the late Alan B. Chesley. Details are specific to USS Arizona BB-39 and were confirmed from careful study of photographs of Mk.19 directors from the National Archives, wreck photos of USS Arizona BB-39 and 1942 refit photos of USS Pennsylvania BB-38.
