Anbody have a couple extra (4) laying around.  Open mount if you please.  Also (2) 40 mm quad mount or twin 3 inch 50. For a build I am doing. Thanks in advance.

You have me very intrigued - every vessel I can think of had either quad 40mm or twin 3inch 50 - not both.  Also it was not clear if you meant the single or twin 5"/38.

If you mean CL-119, I'm pretty sure it had its quad 40s and associated FCS replaced by twin 3"/50s and would not have had both on it simultaneously.  That was a nice catch though Doug - I didn't realise any of the 5"  anti aircraft cruisers had served significantly post war, let alone been re-armed. Juneau was unique in that respect. i wonder why they bothered?

Of course, John could be making before and after models of the same vessel.

Four (4) Single 5" 38 open mounts are what I am looking for.   I would like the 3" 50 twin mount but 40MM quad is also workable for what I am trying.   Have two tubs I am looking to fill.   Either would work.   That is for a 1/350 Essex Class.

 

Also doing a build on a 1/350 Scale CB3 USS Hawaii.    Would like to replace the Quad 40MM with 3" 50 Twin but having a hard time finding the 3" twin mount

Is this a hypothetical build as Hawaii was never completed? Are you going for the proposed command ship conversion?
