cale: 1/700


Set includes 8 directors.  Caution is recommended when removing the directors from the sprue; acrylic plastic is brittle. 

 

This set of models represents the enlarged, Cold War configuration of the US Navy Mark 37 Fire Control Director as they appeared from the 1950s onward.

 

The US Navy Mark 37 Director was used to control the fire of the 5”/38 caliber dual purpose batteries against both aircraft and surface targets, to direct the fire of starshells for the illumination of surface targets and to position the searchlights.  This set represents the enlarged, post-war type seen on USS Wisconsin BB-64, Essex class and Midway class carriers as well as some cruisers during the Cold War-era.
