Model Monkey is happy to announce new products for US Navy warships that were released for October:
A set of 36 Ready Service Ammunition Lockers for 20mm Oerlikon cannons is now available in 1/350 scale.
Although there were many variations, the kind modeled here is one of the most common of the larger types: 62" (~158cm) long x 24" (~61cm) wide x 26.5" (~67cm) high, not including stand.
A set of 36 Ready Service Ammunition Lockers for 5"/25 cal. anti-aircraft guns, 1941-1942 - type, is now available in 1/350 scale for battleships, aircraft carriers, cruisers, etc.
The set is composed of 24 single lockers and 12 double lockers. Although there were variations, this type of locker, with sloped doors and external heat radiator plates, appears in several post-December 7, 1941 photos of salvage operations of sunken battleships at Pearl Harbor.Link: http://shpws.me/Pb30
Modernized SCB-125 islands for the Essex class aircraft carriers USS Intrepid CVS-11 and USS Oriskany CVA-34 as they appeared circa 1968-1973, during the latter part of the Vietnam War, are now available in 1/700 scale. Each design has features unique to the ship such as the shape of decks and catwalks, catwalk supports, splinter shielding and associated venturi (wind deflectors), shape of radar platforms, configuration and routing of exterior piping and cabling, flag locker number and orientation, shape of camera station, door and porthole number and position, etc.. The islands are not the same.
Sets of Fighting Tops for pre-war Lexington class aircraft carriers and Pensacola and Northampton class heavy cruisers are now available in 1/700 scale and 1/350 scale. The designs feature the correct shape and have open windows and doors with delicate framing. Most model kits' fighting tops are inaccurately shaped and/or have solid windows and doors.
