Recommended to help build USS Cleveland CL-55 or USS Columbia CL-56 from:

  • Blue Ridge Models 1/700 scale USS Cleveland CL-55
  • Blue Ridge Models 1/700 scale USS Miami CL-89
  • MidShip Models 1/700 scale USS Cleveland CL-55

These four accurate and highly detailed model turrets represent the four 6"/47 cal. Triple Turrets mounted specifically to USS Cleveland CL-55 and USS Columbia CL-56.  These two ships’ turrets had bolt-on armored rangefinder hoods like the turrets of the preceding Brooklyn class.  Turrets mounted to later Cleveland class ships had integrated rangefinder hoods, available separately.


  • 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
  • detailed rooftop periscope
  • 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
