This scale Twin 14 inch/45 caliber Gun Turret set of five twin-gun turrets is designed for models of New York class battleships USS New York BB-34 and USS Texas BB-35.  These ships had five twin turrets.  

 

There are two turret configurations.  The two turrets located in superfiring positions, Turret Numbers 2 and 4, have small asymmetrical rangefinders on each side near the fron of the turret.  The three turrets located on the main deck, Turret Numbers 1, 3 & 5, do not have rangefinders.  

 
Features:

  • scaled from actual builders blueprints of the turret, dated 1914, and US Navy Bureau of Ordnance pamphlet O.P. 1112, 2nd Revision, dated January, 1945
  • measurements and location of features confirmed from wartime photos of USS New York BB-34 and USS Texas BB-35 and present day photos of Texas preserved as a museum ship
  • integrated gun barrels with scale 14" muzzle opening
  • accurate turret side and glacis curvature
  • Turrets 2 and 4 have asymmetrical rangefinder hoods with telescope openings located on the turret sides to the rear of the glacis (the right-side hood is deeper than the left side hood)
  • properly raised turret roof panel
  • detailed turret roof access hatches with dog and hinge detail
  • turret roof rain gutter/deflector just aft of the glacis
  • subcaliber training device mounting plate located just aft of the glacis on the turret roof
  • roof-mounted periscope bases properly located off-center (persicopes not included - too fine to survive cleaning at the factory)
  • accurately positioned and shaped gun openings with buckler (bloomer/blast bag) attachment frames
  • crew access hatch (aka "Armored Grating Hatch") on turret bottom overhang, with hydraulic piston and hinge detail.  Turrets 1,3 and 5 are hinged to the front.  Turrets 2 and 4 are hinged to the rear.
