Scale: 1/547.  Some Revell box art and websites erroneously report the scale of the Revell Midway class kits as 1/540.  Comparison of the models to Navy plans indicates that the models' true scale is 1/547.  These directors are precisely scaled to match the Revell kits' true scale.

Set includes 18 mounts (turrets) - barrels not included

Recommended for:

  • Heller (ex-Revell) 1/547 scale USS Franklin D. Roosevelt CV-42
  • Revell 1/547 scale USS Midway CV-41 
  • Revell 1/547 scale USS Franklin D. Roosevelt CV-42 
  • Revell 1/547 scale USS Coral Sea CV-43


This set of accurately shaped and highly detailed models represents the fourteen 5"/54 caliber Mk.16 mounts carried by USS Midway CVB-41, USS Franklin D. Roosevelt CVB-42 and USS Coral Sea CVB-43 circa 1949-1953.  These mounts perfectly match any of the three Midway class carrier models made by Revell and also released by Heller.
