Scale: 1/200

Set includes 4 tubs with exterior rib reinforcement.  Quadruple 40mm Bofors mounts are not included.

This set of models represents the protective splinter shielding known as "gun tubs" fit to World War Two-era US Navy warships around 40mm Bofors quadruple-gun mounts.  Dimensions are scaled from typical 18'-4" (`5.59 m) diameter tubs with a shield height of 4'-3" (`1.3 m).  This set has 8 equi-distant reinforcing ribs on the shield exterior as seen on some tubs.  A set of smooth tubs is available separately.

Carefully cut away or clip away any unneeded sections.  3D-printed plastic is brittle.  Careful use of a very sharp hobby knife or clippers is recommended.


Dimensions of a single tub:

  • Outer Diameter (not including ribs): 27.94 mm
  • Height: 6.48 mm
  • Splinter shield and floor thickness: 0.53 mm
