Master Model 1/350 Type 96 25mm IJN AA Barrels

The Japanese Type 96 25mm gun is most well known as an anti-aircraft (AA) mount, appearing in single, twin, and triple gun mounts. It served the role of a medium AA mount on virtually ever ship in the IJN during WW 2. The gun was also used ashore, where is also served as a dual purpose AA gun with anti-armor capabilites.

This set of 20 barrels has grooves cut in to simulate the recoil spring of the 25mm, as well as the flared muzzle- and all this in 1/350! The barrels come well packaged with card stiffener in the main bag and a page of printed instructions.

These barrels are so tiny, I really had a hard time taking useful images- the 40mm Bofors are huge in comparison! Very nice! But mounting them will prove challenging! Recommended for experienced modelers.

These amazing little barrels from Master Model #SM-350-011, are available via White Ensign Models for around $11.00US
