Scale 1/96   (1/8 ich = 1 foot)

These 3D-printed parts are intended to help you build the Baltimore class heavy cruisers USS Saint Paul CA-73 or USS Los Angeles CA-135 as they appeared during the Vietnam War.

These parts are designed to represent the four protected fighting positions, known as "gun tubs", for dual-gun 3"/50 cal. mounts.  Two of the tubs feature angled, rear corners.  The angled corner provides space for the flag lockers of the forward superstructure.  Subtle raised disks indicate the location of the 3"/50 cal. mounts.  3"/50 cal. mounts are not included.

Overall dimensions of this design are based on official US Navy drawings of sistership USS Los Angeles CA-135 adjusted to match photographs of USS St. Paul.  Copies of these plans can be obtained from The Floating Drydock ( Some features have been designed thicker than scale to meet 3D-printing requirements.
