|J&D Productions has produced this gun mount in 1/96
scale for use on some of the early US Patrol Subs. With a few modifications
it could also be used on a flush deck (4 piper) destroyer.
The gun assembly consists of five parts: a gun pedestal, barrel assembly,
gun sights, and two seats. The parts are cast in soft metal and came with
hardly even a trace of flash. They will require only a minimal amount of
cleanup before they are ready to assemble. The gun barrel can be elevated
just like the prototype. The casting is quite nice and even the bolt and
washer detail on the gun base is evident.
The kit comes with a one page set of instructions that include a step
by step approach to each part. Each part is identified and clearly shown
making it very to build.
Additional information on this gun mount can be found on the Warships1.com
website in their Weapons
of the World 4" 50 cal gun section.
