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
