True Scale: 1/164. Lindberg's box art erroneously states the scale of the kit as 1/170. Sources indicate the true scale is 1/164. This model is precisely scaled to fit the Lindberg kit.

Set includes 2 anchors with shanks.

Recommended for the Lindberg 1/164 scale USS Carronade IFS-1 "Bobtail Cruiser" Missile Assault Ship


This set of model anchors is patterned on the US Navy's standard 4,000 pound anchors used on destroyers, destroyer escorts, auxiliaries and other similarly sized vessels from the 1930s onward.

Assembly instructions: remove all parts from the sprue, insert the shank through the bottom of the anchor.  Do not glue the shank to the anchor.  Insert the retaining pin through the small hole at the bottom of the anchor and glue in place.  The shank will swivel freely.

These parts are designed for a tight fit.  While producing exceptional detail, acrylic plastic is brittle and breaks easily.  Trim parts, if necessary, rather than force them into place.

These 3D-printed acrylic parts are designed to accurately represent features of the actual ship based on official Navy blueprints.  These are not 3D-printed copies of Lindberg's plastic kit's parts and therefore are not the same size and shape.  Some adjustment to your plastic kit's parts or other aftermarket parts such as photoetch may be necessary for best fit.  CA "super glue" will bond this acrylic part to your plastic kit's deck.
