These four accurate and highly detailed model turrets represent the four 6"/47 cal. Triple Turrets mounted to the later ships of the US Navy’s Cleveland class of light cruisers.  These turrets have the late-style integrated rangefinder hoods.  The first two ships of the class, USS Cleveland CL-55 and USS Columbia CL-56, had bolt-on armored rangefinder hoods, available separately.


Features:

  • overall dimensions precisely scaled from scans of original builder's blueprints
  • accurately shaped complex curvature
  • open glacis gun ports
  • armored rangefinder hexhead bolt and domed screw details
  • turret bottoms are numbered for easy identification
  • Turrets 1 and 4 located on the main deck have accurate access hatch and shell ejection ports on aft turret wall (superfiring Turrets 2 and 3 do not – access for Turrets 2 and 3 was made through the turret bottom overhang)
  • Turret 4 does not have an integrated rangefinder

 

These scale model turrets are designed from scans of original builder’s blueprints.  They are not 3D-printed copies of any resin or plastic model kit’s parts.
