This set of 4 directors and 4 antennas represents two types of Mk.34 directors (World War Two and Cold War configurations) fit to ships of the Brooklyn class, St. Louis class, Cleveland class, Baltimore class, and rebuilt pre-war battleships of the Tennessee and Colorado classes. It was also fit to USS St. Louis CL-49 and others. Four of each type are included. Please check your references to know which of the two types is accurate for your model.
Some directors were fit with airfoil-shaped Mk.13 radar antennas which are included in this set. Again, please check your references to know if this antenna is accurate for your model. No photo-etch is included. If desired, please use your own favorite photo-etch set for catwalks, railings and radar supporting framework.
