For fans of the classic Revell 1/96 scale USS Constitution "Old Ironsides" kits, here is a set of accurate 32-pounder carronades with skeads. Note that the carronades aboard Constitution today are actually 1845-pattern "gunnades" which feature a trunnion. Gunnades are not accurate for Constitution's War of 1812 appearance. The models below are true "carronades" which were supported by a post and pin, not a trunnion.

For fans of the classic Revell 1/96 scale USS United States, a set of whopper 42-pounder carronades is available.

The carronade models are followed by a set of 12 lanterns in 1/96 scale. The carronades and lanterns are available in other popular scales.

Here are 6"/53 cal. turrets for Omaha class light cruisers in 1/350 scale followed by a 1/35 scale Maybach HL230 P30 motor. This was the common motor of several World War Two-era, German heavy fighting vehicles including the Tiger I, King Tiger, Panther, Jagdpanther, Sturmtiger etc.

For 1/350 scale Tamiya USS Missouri BB-63 fans, here is a set of 16"/50 cal. turrets properly scaled to fit the Tamiya kits. The 16" turrets feature open rangefinder hood shutters with rangefinder visible within. They are followed by early Cold War-era US Navy life raft racks and a pair of anchors for fast battleships.

Mark and I have been discussing some future projects. Once some technical issues are overcome, we hope to add 1/144 scale airliner engines to the catalog.

Makes me want to go out and buy a 1/200 Arizona and do a conversion just for the rarity of it. Got no space for ships that big though.

And speaking of reconstructed USS Pennsylvania BB-38, for those would like to convert your 1/200 scale Trumpeter USS Arizona BB-39 kit to elder sister USS Pennsylvania as she appeared in 1945, here are forward superstructure parts to help (spread out over two posts).

Here are 1/200 scale 5"/38 cal. Mk.32 mounts for aircraft carriers, cruisers and reconstructed, pre-war battleships (USS Nevada BB-36, USS Pennsylvania BB-38, USS Tennessee BB-43, USS California BB-44, very late USS Maryland BB-46, and USS West Virginia BB-48).

They are suitable for:
- Trumpeter 1/200 scale USS Arizona BB-39 - converted to USS Pennsylvania BB-38 (1943-45)
- Answer-Angraf 1/200 scale USS Ticonderoga CV-14

- Modelik 1/200 scale USS Oklahoma BB-37 - converted to USS Nevada BB-36 (1943-1945)
- and more!

These Mk.32 mounts are NOT suitable for fast battleships (North Carolina, South Dakota and Iowa classes). Mk.28 mounts with a slightly different shape and detailing, are available separately for models of fast battleships.

Thanks so much Jodie and Kelley!

Regarding sponsons, I requested help from a very talented elf but he has decided to pursue a much better paying career in dentistry.

Unfortunately, due to lack of sufficient authoritative references showing each of the many sponsons (at least 3 different views needed for each sponson) for four different ships in their many configurations across many time periods, as well as technical difficulties in designing sponsons that will fit the complex curvature of several different kit manufacturers' differently-shaped hulls in all the various scales Forrestal class kits are available, I am unable to design Forrestal class sponsons.

Perhaps another designer will be able to design them and accept your request. You can post your request here: https://www.shapeways.com/forum/f/3d-de ... quests.92/

In other news, Santa's elves (except one) happily, in non-suck fashion, finished these for Lindberg's 1/125 scale "Blue Devil Destroyer":

Merry Christmas!

Santa's elves have been busy in 1/350 scale. Here's an island for USS Yorktown CV-5 as it appeared at the Battle of Midway.
