    That is the correct weapon mount by Solothurn and not Vickers.

    Here is a photo "Vickers" on the cruiser "Tromp" ... Probably the same guns stood on the "De Ruyter"???

    You asked me to task!
    Indeed, shield very strange shape!!
    I'll try to draw them on a scale of 1/350
    Is not known what will be the result?

    Here is an enlarged view of Java's Bofors mount face shield from Antens book. (DR's seem to be identical - on her wreck - although no historical photos appear to exist showing them.)

    As you can see it is rather an odd shape. Two curves so to speak. Looked at from side on it is almost like a poorly drawn number '3' (bottom left).

    Maybe some of you will be able to draw the shape of these shields???
    I would gladly add them to the set of "De Ruyter"

    Yes, the wreck of De Ruyter shows these shields: http://www.netherlandsnavy.nl/Photo_ruyter.htm, plus a few images of De Ruyter in camouflage. Java had the same shields.

    Additional links to discussions regarding these shields:

    If so, don't forget to put 'sheilds' on the 'face' of all the Bofors.

    Thank you ...
    I wonder where this information????
    Are there photos???

    Are you making the model as she was configured when sunk?

    If so, don't forget to put 'sheilds' on the 'face' of all the Bofors.

    Those are the twin 0.5" Colt machine guns on Solothurn mounts.

    This is an image from the original plans of De Ruyter. You can find previews of images of the mount here. I've not been able to find better drawings.
