Raytheon "R2-D2 Unit"
A 1:65 scale model of a Mk 15 Phalanx CIWS unit.
About this creation
I'm finally getting rolling again after taking several weeks off from building during the holidays. Here is the first thing I have finished so far -- a 1:65 scale model of a Phalanx CIWS. It might not be perfect, but I think it will suffice for my purposes. While the model is a little more fragile than I would have liked, it is capable of rotating 360 degrees, elevating to over +90 degrees, and depressing to -10 degrees (which matches the capabilities of the Block 0 Phalanx almost exactly).

I can neither confirm nor deny that this Phalanx unit is being shipped to Avondale Shipyard to be installed as part of an upgrade to a ship currently in drydock.

If you don't mind. Could I use your design on my ship? I might make a few changes though.

Looks really nice!

Those two types of ships are rarely ever built; it'd be great to see one :-D

Quoting Marty Fields Nice little model. Just needs the radome to be white.
Thanks. The radome actually is white, but I used gray-shaded ambient lighting (perhaps a little too gray), so it came out looking a little dark.

Quoting Achintya Prasad Nice! I shoulda known Coast Guard ;-D I'm glad you chose this; the only other ship that fits those perimeters is, well, not the best looking ship....
I am still planning to work on some WWII BBs at some point, probably at a scale slightly larger than your Missouri (something like 1:250, but I haven't worked out all of the details yet). As I did some of the research for this project and the BBs, it occurred to me that it would be pretty neat to build an LHD or LPD at some point as well, but that would be in the distant future.

Quoting Nick Barrett Really clean, handsome build. We await the SHIP it adorns with bated breath...
It's going to take me a while to get it all done, but I should be posting pieces of it every so often. The aforementioned Jayhawk and OTO Melara 76mm/62 cannon should be making their appearance fairly soon. After that, I'll probably start on the helipad and work from there -- that's how I did it with the previous cutter..

Quoting Achintya Prasad Hamilton?
Indeed. I'm working on an HH-60 Jayhawk to land on it -- that pretty much would have given it away.

Quoting Achintya Prasad Ah, the good ole OHP class ;-D That's a nice one! Six feet 0.0
Your getting warmer, but still not quite there. I'm going to finish a few more of the components in the next few days. One of them will be a dead giveaway about the subject.

Quoting Tom Simon Your purposes? Do I smell a large ship coming?
My biggest ever, but don't expect it too soon. I'm still trying to get a good set of plans so that I can get the hull shaping correct. Until then, I'm just going to work on components, like this Phalanx unit.

I just realized that the picture is wrong, I am updating it now... I had the rubber band on it wrong... lol

I added the picture of the suspension when pushed down on so you can see how it works.

Quoting clayton Marchetti Great job on the phalanx Matt! I can't wait to see the new ship. Are we going to see tomahawk cases next?
Thanks. The next component you are likely to see is a Mk 75 3"/62 cannon, which should be a somewhat of a clue about where I am going here.

Quoting omega (rich) nice build!
Quoting Alex Rode Clean and cool! Nice build!
Quoting Luke V This is really accurate for its size!!! Great job and check out some of my newest creations when you get a chance!
Quoting Builder Allan Cool! Nice details for the small size :-)
Quoting Kirill Simerzin I have nothing to say - you've built great tiny model!))
Thanks, everyone!

Quoting Gabor Pauler Excellent styling in such a small scale. You could try the ammo belt connecting the magazine with the gun using some thin flex tube.
Thanks. I may try adding a belt somehow, but my guess it that at this scale, it is going to be hard to find a way to attach it. Another modification I might make is create a Block 1B version, with the FLIR sensor sticking out from the side of the radome.

Quoting Achintya Prasad Nice! Hmm. Based on the information and clues you've left, this should be a BB. But in 1/65 scale? Powerful computer.....
Good guess, but it's not going onto a BB. The actual ship in question is a little less than 400 feet long, which is still going to make the MOC pretty huge -- nearly 6 feet. That ought to narrow it down somewhat.
