Tim, thanks-- so the barrels are flat, but in the product photos they look round-- at least for the Missouri? Still there may be some complex shapes that would be useful for scratch building.

How do they handle the metal gun barrels? ...Could you post some close up photos of the Arizona?
VR, Russ



Sure Russ. Here's one of Arizona's turrets:

Tim,
How do they handle the metal gun barrels? I've seen thier earlier architectural offerings. I wasn't much interested in the kits before, but it looks like some of the details of the Arizona and now this new Missouri could be adapted for other kits- like the radars, gun barrels and catapult details. Could you post some close up photos of the Arizona?
VR, Russ
