The next big ship project design is a superstructure for USS Oklahoma BB-37 in 1/700 scale, 1/429 scale (Revell Arizona conversion) and 1/350 scale. In preparation for that, here is a set of turrets in 1/350 scale. Barrels will be made available separately.

The triple-gun turrets of USS Nevada and USS Oklahoma differed from Pennsylvania's and Arizona's in that they did not have external vent trunks.

For Bismarck and Tirpitz fans, here are pairs of Deutsche Kriegsmarine 15 cm twin-gun turrets with integrated blast bags in 1/200 scale.

They are followed by a set of US Navy Mk.19 fire control directors in 1/700 scale.

Hi Richard,

Thanks for the interest! PM coming your way.

The original 3D printer I used was producing great models. Its replacement is producing even crisper detail. For example, for those with the classic Revell 1/302 scale US Coast Guard Cutter Roger B. Taney or USCGC Campbell, here is a pair of 5"/38 cal. mounts for your kit.

Could you do a bridge for the 1/700 Tamiya O-Class Royal Navy Destroyers? That would be part A-4.

Thanks so much, Martin! Gotta love "Big J".

For those with the classic Revell 1/301 scale Fletcher class destroyer, here are some 5"/38 cal. mounts for you.
The set includes 2 "double knuckle" and 3 "single knuckle" mounts. The two types of mount are also available separately.

For US Navy cruiser fans, here are a pair of World War Two-era, enclosed Mk.33 fire control directors in 1/144 scale. The directors are available in other popular scales, too, including 1/700 and 1/350.

The directors are followed by a World War Two-era "Set, Complete Radio 522-A" ("SCR-522-A") used by the US Army Air Corps, Royal Air Force and Royal Australian Air Force.  This model is available in 1/32 and 1/24 scales. Other scales are possible.


Often erroneously referred to as a "Signal Corps Radio", the SCR-522-A was installed aboard many aircraft types.  For example, the SCR-522-A was a conspicuous feature of the P-51D and P-51K Mustang fighters, installed behind the pilot's armored seat back and visible through the bubble canopy.   In RAF and RAAF service, this radio set was known as the TR.5043. 

The design for a 3D-printed cockpit for the classic 1/32 scale Revell Bristol Beaufighter is nearing completion. The cockpit should be available later this month.

Thank you very much, Cap'n!

For large scale sailing ship fans, here is a set of US Navy 24-pounder carronades in 1/64 scale for brigs such as Model Shipways' USS Syren (1803), USS Argus (picture below), etc. Carronades of various sizes from 18-pounder to whopping 68-pounder, of both US Navy and Royal Navy patterns, are available in several popular scales.

The carronades are followed by Deutsche Kriegsmarine 160 cm searchlights in 1/350 scale.

For Lexington class aircraft carrier fans, here are the island and funnel of USS Lexington CV-2 as they appeared in 1941 through very early 1942 (raids on New Guinea), both in 1/700 scale. Lexington featured 8"/55 cal. twin-gun turrets at that time. Battle of the Coral Sea-appearance designs are available separately.

For the modeler who only wants the island, a matching fighting top for the funnel is included.

For those building the Heller or Airfix 1/100 scale HMS Victory, here are 32-pounder and 24-pounder Blomefield long-pattern cannons for the lower two gun decks. They feature King George monograms. Two types of 12-pounders for the upper gun deck and spar deck are also available (images posted previously). The 24 pounders are not smaller 32-pounders. They are very different proportionally and have different reinforcement rings.

The cannons are followed by an Essex class enclosed electric stairway (escalator) in 1/700 scale. It is suitable for "straight-deck" Korean War-era and "angled-deck" Vietnam War-era ships.

You're very welcome!

For 1/700 scale Essex class fans, here's the island of USS Wasp CV-18 as it appeared from November, 1943 through December, 1944.
It was with this configuration that Wasp participated in several Pacific battles including the invasion of Saipan and the Battle of the Philippine Sea, also remembered as the "Great Marianas Turkey Shoot".
