Thank you for your opinion. I believe it relevant due to the fact that a competitor has a set they just released as and a number of other reasons. I will wait for Infini to answer if they choose.

Dear W.H.min

Yes that's right. If you remove only the rivet head on the roof of the turret,
the shape of the enclosure does not appear to be a critical error.

Thank you

The price of the entire set has not yet been determined.
When the quantity of the whole components is confirmed, the price of the set will be fixed.
And since the retail price may vary from store to shop, the exact price
You can check it on the retailer site.

Here is USS Alaska's crane.

Those cranes are impressive - little models unto themselves.

I think USS Alaska used MK.32 instead of MK.28.

Dear W.H.min

I have no clear data on whether the 5-inch gun used in Alaska was Mk-28 or Mk-32.
The important thing is that the armor plate used for 5inch mounts is thick so that the rivet head does not pop up.
Thank you for informing us about 5inch mount in USS Alaska.
If your information is correct, we will change the name of the 5-inch gun on the picture.

No, I don't mean you use the wrong name on that picture. Actually it is Trumpeter's foul, they moulded wrong 5''/38 cal. gunhouses, they look more like MK.28 than MK.32, even they are not exactly MK.28 because Trumpeter ‘added’ a ringer finder window on its right wall. I do think a perfect Alaska detail up set may need some resin parts to replace these 5''/38 cal. gunhouses.

Dear W.H.min

I am Sang hyun Park, chief designer of Infini-model.
I now understand what you mean. I have compared 5inch gunhouse in hobbyboss kit with drawings and pictures of USS Alaska.
As you mentioned, it is certainly wrong to have two range finders on the right side of the 5inch gunhouse.
But it seems to be uneconomical to change the entire range because of the rangefinder problem.
Of course, if you want more precise detailing, it may be a good idea to replace it with a high quality resin product.

Regards,

S.H.Park
