Thanks so much, Maxim!

A valued customer sent some photos of his recently completed 1/700 scale USS Oklahoma BB-37 and USS St Paul CA-73 models. His Okie features Model Monkey 14"/45 turrets and Mk.19 directors. His St. Paul features a Model Monkey forward superstructure, 8"/55 turrets, 3"/50 tubs, and Mk.34, Mk.37 and Mk.56 fire control directors. Another valued customer, our own Martin Quinn, sent photos of his 1/350 scale Revell Tirpitz, featuring Model Monkey turrets all around.

Love that Oklahoma! The St Paul is nice too. That other guy? What a hack... :roll_eyes:

Thanks, Martin!

Happy to announce some new nameplates:

- all three Indiana-class battleships, USS Indiana BB-1, USS Massachusetts, BB-2 and USS Oregon BB-3, 10 cm length to complement your 1/225 scale Glencoe USS Oregon kit

- Shimakaze 島風, suitable for both the exceptionally fast World War Two-era IJN destroyer (47 knots!) or modern JMSDF Hatakaze-class destroyer. It's a large plate, 10 cm, to complement 1/350 scale kits (Fujimi, Hasegawa, etc.) and 1/200 scale kits (Timo's Model World multi-media kit). 5"/54 cal. single-dome "Frog-Eye" mounts are available, too, for Hatakaze class ships, etc.

- Nanchang 南昌, first PLAN Type 055 stealth guided missile destroyer (filling a role roughly similar to a Ticonderoga-class cruiser)

- three more PLAN Type 052D guided missile destroyer 10 cm-length nameplates, Hefei 合肥, Xining 西宁, and Yinchuan 银川, bringing the total of Type 052D nameplates to six ships of the class (roughly similar to an Arleigh Burke-class destroyer)

- three Royal Navy World War Two-era M-class destroyers including one in Polish Navy service, HMS Musketeer, HMS Milne and ORP Orkan

The designs for 1/350 scale RMS Titanic funnels and a 1/350 scale bridge for Des Moines class heavy cruiser USS Salem CA-139 are nearing completion.

In the mean time, new nameplates for early US battleships and two more nameplates for Flower class corvettes have been added to the catalog.

Thanks to Rick E. Davis, Tracy White and Larry Ouellette (a volunteer on museum ship Salem) for their help and advice.

Excellent photos of USS Salem are available on the Modellmarine.de website. Link:
http://www.modellmarine.de/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=5548:schwerer-kreuzer-uss-salem-in-quincy-teil-1&catid=216:museumsschiffe

Features:

- 4-part kit.
- Overall dimensions and features of this design are based on official US Navy Booklet of General Plans (BoGP) drawings of sistership USS Newport News CA-148 adjusted to match high-resolution photographs of museum ship USS Salem CA-139 and to fit the Very Fire 1/350 scale kits.
- Open bridge windows.
- Accurately shaped decks and platforms with below-deck supporting structure.  The length of the uppermost deck and deckhouse matches BoGP drawings. It is accurately shorter than the Very Fire kit's parts.
- Splinter shielding configuration accurate for 1950s.  The Very Fire kits' splinter shielding is accurate for the ships' as-built, late 1940s appearance.
- Accurately shaped Mk.37 fire control director tower of the correct height, with aft locker and access door, and battle lookout slits with shades.  The Very Fire kits' tower is an inaccurately-shaped simple cylinder, is too tall, and has no detailing.
- Accurately shaped (semi-circular) and fully instrumented pilot house forward armored bulkhead with open battle lookouts and coverings in the lowered position.  The Very Fire kits' pilot house and flag bridge forward bulkheads are inaccurately flat with no detailing.  The Very Fire kit's navigation bridge pilot house sides are inaccurately shaped.
- Fully instrumented navigation bridge and flag bridge interior bulkheads including chart tables, with overhead support detailing, all consistent with photographs of the actual ship's bridge interior.
- Accurately shaped navigation bridge overhead cover.  The Very Fire kit's cover extends too far to the rear covering too many windows.  The aft-most windows on the real ship's navigation bridge were not covered.
- Accurately positioned deck openings for inclined ladders.  The Very Fire kit's openings are too far forward.
- Open venturi (wind deflector) with the correct number of baffles.  The Very Fire kit's venturi is solid with too many baffles.
- Other features included in this model but omitted from the Very Fire kits:
1. Integrated peloruses on the navigation bridge and flag bridge, two on each deck, of the correct configuration.
2. Accurately configured doors and portholes on the aft side of the deckhouses.
3. Doors of two different configurations, rapid-opening on deck house sides, and fully dogged on the aft end of the deckhouses.  The Very Fire kit's doors are of an inaccurate configuration for Salem.
4. Accurate absence of rigols ("eyebrows") above portholes.  The real ship did not have them on the bridge bulkheads.  The Very Fire kits bridge parts inaccurately include them.
5. Starboard side, aft, bridge urinal station with door.
6. Splinter shielding interior reinforcing ribs.
7. Port and starboard sidelights with reflecting plates.
8. Starboard side square antenna trunk with insulator on top.
9. Outriggers for mast stays.
