This set of accurately shaped and highly detailed models represents the eighteen 5"/54 caliber Mk.16 mounts carried by USS Midway CVB-41, USS Franklin D. Roosevelt CVB-42 and USS Coral Sea CVB-43 as built. By 1948, the number of mounts had been reduced to 14.

  • slot for barrel
  • solid blast hood for gun mount captain with subtle exterior framing
  • mount bottom post to aid in alignment
  • set contains 9 left-handed mounts and 9 right-handed mounts (the difference is the location of the blast hood  - see photos in the carousel above which are marked to show where mounts of each type should be located on your model)
  • all mounts marked either "L" or "R" inside the mount to indicate whether the mount is left-handed or right-handed
