BMK 1/700 8"/55 Brass Barrels

BMK Shop has released a needed upgrade for your Trumpeter USS San Francisco and Minneapolis kits; brass barrels for the main guns.

This set of 9 machined brass barrels have few if any machining marks. As is the BMK practice, the barrels have been drilled out and have a small pin left to aid mounting to the plastic blast bags; I had to trim the "pin" short to fit inside the blast bags. The BMK barrels have a shorter recoil sleeve which appears more prototypically correct than the plastic barrels included in the Trumpeter kit.

You can order them direct from the Modellmarine Shop or where ever BMK accessories are sold.

Thanks to BMK for these review samples.
