Need Specialty Help
« on: July 15, 2013, 04:05:44 AM »

 Hello

 I have a Revell 1/72 WWII Corvette model that I have made into remote control. I would like to add a sound effect for the main deck gun; 4" mark XI, I believe. I am looking for a free sound file that I can download into a audio circuit of the deck gun firing.

 Does anyone know of any source for this? Could you post a link for me?

 Thanks

 George

 Hello Again

 Since I am NOT sure of the correct sound of this type of deck gun. Does anyone have any idea of what the firing of this size of deck gun from a WWII Corvette should sound like?

 Any sound files you can find would help me alot.

 Thanks

There many free bits of software you could use to sample the sound from a DVD played on your computer.  So play The Cruel Sea ("I think I could reach him now, Sir!")  and grab the gun fire. Save the sound as a mp3 as any thing else uses up loads of space.

Try this file, I just made it quickly. Its a 2 second clip of an Iowa Class 16 inch gun (according to the video I took it from anyway!)

 Hi condeh

 Thank You for your reply to my post for help.I like the clear sound but it`s a 16 inch gun. Is it possible for you to see a video clip of a U.S Destroyer firing a MK45?

 That sound is perfect BUT is there any way you could capture the sound without the part with the empty brass ejecting and other external sounds. Could you make it a bit louder and a second longer, 2-3 seconds?

 Thanks Again for your post / help.

Guys.....a little confusion here ........... :embarrassed:
The US Iowa class 16" ordinance used silk filled cordite bags for the explosive accelerant  & not pre rammed explosive filled brass shells
The British standard 4" MK X to MK X1V mounts used projectiles similar in concept to a .303 or .22 hand gun shell projectile, being pre filled & rammed & yes the brass shell casings were collectors items...... O0
Whilst I have never experienced either of the above gun mounts firing......I have witnesses firing of 5"/54 calibre FMC mounts on our OZ DDG destroyers & I can assure you they are very >>:-( LOUD
 
 
 O0
It is all about the velocity of the projectile that determines the sound pressure level & the frequency...... Derek

 Hi Derek

 Any chance you can get a sound file of a single gun firing without the empty brass ejection sound or any other background sound?

George....
  • Current Australian/British/American vessels with 75 mm to 5"guns all use pre rammed shell cases & with projectiles fitted
  • I am unsure if a WWII destroyer with 4"guns & used non brass cased ordinance [projectiles]
  • The current Australian ANZAC class vessels have a 5"/54 calibre gun mount .........that will make a sound similar to your older 4" MK X mounts

 Hello Again Derek

 First, Thanks again for your help. My model is a 1/72 Revell WWII Corvette. I don`t know much more details reg. it`s main gun except it was a 4". If you can get / find a clear loud sound bit of the one you mentioned without any shell casing being ejected or other external noise, I would be ok with that.

The 4" on a corvette would be a brass shell case.  I think I've got the right software on my laptop at home.  I'll see if if I can lift the 4" sound from "The Cruel Sea" or the older "Corvette K225"   Any other sounds you need?  DC thrower or racks? Ships bell?
