USN Radar of WWII

Eduard 1:350

This single sheet set of relief etched brass continues Eduards policy of releasing useful sets to add detail to parts of a model that seems to be forgotten.  This set, for US WWII Radars is really quite comprehensive. The radars included are:-

 

  • CXAM Early made up from only two parts, but needs a piece of styrene rod for the base.
  • YE Aircraft homing beacon, also made from two parts and requiring a styrene pole to be fixed on.
  • Mk3 Main battery fire control radar, made from five parts and also requiring the styrene base.
  • 2 x Mk4 Secondary battery fire control radar, made from eight parts.
  • SC-1 Surface search radar array, made from nine parts and utilises the kit base.
  • CXAM-1 Surface search radar made from twenty five parts and requires a styrene base.
  • SC-2 Surface search radar array, very complex twenty two piece unit which uses the kit base and transmitter probe.
  • 2 x Mk22 Height finding radar for detecting low flying aircraft, made of three parts and a piece of styrene rod to attach it to the Mk4 or a Mk12 director array.
  • 2 x Mk12 Secondary fire control radar, a seven piece unit which requires some complex folding and shaping. Fitted to the top of a Mk37 director from 1944 onwards.

Conclusion

This is a very useful set as it covers the entire selection of radar arrays used throughout the war. All you have to do is carefully build each array and fit to your model. Of course you will need to do some research to determine what array was fitted when on your particular subject.

Depending on their size, I'm thinking of using the parts for a slightly different purpose. Would you be able to post a picture of the sheet next to a standard rule or tape measure?
