Set includes 4 turrets.
A set of barrels is available separately, shown with the turrets in the images in the carousel.
This set of 4 turrets represents the 38cm (15") main battery of the World War Two-era Deutsche Kriegsmarine battleships Bismarck and Tirpitz, more properly known as the Drh L C/34 mount with SK C/34 guns.
- overall dimensions scaled from Krupp factory drawings. The scaled dimensions match drawings published in Anatomy of the Ship: The Battleship Bismarck by Jack Brower
- details confirmed by careful study of photographs of the real ships
- a set of barrels, available separately, can be set to any realistic elevation from -5.5 to +30 degrees, just like the real turrets
- Turret "Anton", the forward-most turret on the ship, accurately has its rangefinder and armored rangefinder hoods removed and the openings blanked. Turrets "Bruno", "Caesar" and "Dora" have accurate armored rangefinder hoods with closed shutters
- accurately sized and positioned bolthead detail
- accurately shaped rangefinder and viewfinder shutters in closed positions
These model turrets were designed from official drawings of the real turrets. They are NOT 3D-printed copies of any plastic or resin kits' parts therefore they may be sized and shaped differently than the parts in your plastic or resin kit. Some adjustment to your kit's parts or other aftermarket sets such as photo etch may be needed for best fit.
