Complete forward superstructure and funnel. Probably not the 01 level (very big = too expensive to sell).

Any plans for the mini tower, AA platform on the stern, and main bodies for turrets 2 and 3 with their 20mm gun tubs as well?

We are very happy to announce that a set of accurately shaped and detailed North Carolina BB-55 class funnels, has been added to the catalog.

Model Monkey 1-350 North Carolina Funnels.jpg [ 32.86 KiB | Viewed 1564 times ]

When viewed from above, some kits' funnels are inaccurately teardrop-shaped. These 3D-printed acrylic funnels are correctly parallel-sided with a gently curving aft contour, just like the real funnels.

Features:
- open smoke pipes that pass entirely through the funnel
- accurate interior compartmentalization
- correctly shaped funnel cap (not round like Trumpeter's)
- steam pipe detail in the funnel top's service platform

Happy Modeling!
Steve

[edit: 1/700 scale added]

Sounds like a good idea. I can make a pair of turrets with the tubs and associated ammo lockers. I'll do it when I design the Pennsy '44 products.

A set of Oerlikon tubs is available separately in several scales, now, for those who need some right away.

I feel like a pest. I was searching through Shapeways. I couldn't find any 40mm gun tubs.

I haven't designed a generic set of Bofors tubs because there are too many variations of those tubs, even on a single ship, so many that a generic set wouldn't meet scratchbuilding customer's needs.

PM coming your way.

Hello Steve,
Regarding your corrected 1/700 North Carolina class funnels, the attachment points for the funnels, parts A3 and C1 on the Trumpeter North Carolina kit, are teardrop shape. Can anything be done about that?
Thank you.
Louis

Hi Louis,

According to drawings by Thomas F. Walkowiak (The Floating Drydock), Trumpeter's teardrop-shape attachment points (base of the funnels) is accurate. No change there is needed. It's just the funnels themselves that Trumpeter got wrong.

Cheers!

We are pleased to announce that a design for a set of three 16"/45 cal. South Dakota BB-57 class Turrets with barrels is complete in 1/350 scale and has been added to the catalog. These turrets are intended to replace the inaccurately shaped and poorly detailed turrets found in Trumpeter's 1/350 scale USS Massachusetts and USS Alabama kits.

Other scales coming.

Attachment:
1-350 16in-45 South Dakota Turrets (3) with barrels.a.jpg
1-350 16in-45 South Dakota Turrets (3) with barrels.a.jpg [ 28.32 KiB | Viewed 1343 times ]

Link: http://shpws.me/OadX

This set of three-gun turrets (more properly called "gunhouses") represents the enormous main battery of battleships USS South Dakota BB-57, USS Indiana BB-58, USS Massachusetts BB-59 and USS Alabama BB-60. They are nearly identical to, but very slightly larger than, the gunhouses of the preceding North Carolina class battleships and differ in minor detail.

Features:
- scaled from scans of original builder's blueprints
- open armored rangefinder viewport shutters
- rangefinders with telescopic sights visible through the open shutters of the armored covers
- rooftop screwheads acurately sized, numbered and located
- armored rangefinder hexhead bolt and screw details
- detailed rooftop periscopes
- left periscope for Turret #2 is accurately offset slightly to the right, just like the left periscope of the real Turret #2
- turrets are marked inside (1, 2 or 3) to identify which turret is which
- accurately sized and shaped ventilation trunks
- detailed turret-bottom crew access hatch, accurately offset slightly to the left
- barrels grouped on a trunnion to allow the modeler to set the position of the barrels to any realistic elevation from +45 degrees to -1 degree (-2 degrees for Turret #3), just like the real turrets

Happy Modeling!
Steve

Large scale USN fast battleship fans! An entirely new design for 5"/38 cal. Mk.28 Twin Mounts has resulted in a 50% price drop in 1/200 scale, 1/192 scale, 1/100 scale and 1/96 scale. Each mount is loaded with detail.

Correct Mk.28s may now be within budget for those with Trumpeter 1/200 scale Iowa and Missouri kits, both kits 5"/38 mounts are noticeably, wrongly shaped. The Trumpeter mounts look more like Mk.32s, a lighter-weight version designed for cruisers and aircraft carriers.
