ArmamentGun Barrels for the 1/350 Combrig Viribus Unitis


Reviewed August 2017
by Martin J Quinn
KuK Viribus Unitis was a Tegetthoff-class battleship of the Austro-Hungarian Navy. These four ships were among the first ships to utilize triple gun turrets for their main armament, following the pattern set by the Italian Dante Alighieri, whom the Austrian ships were expected to do battle against. 

The Tegetthoff’s are beautiful ships, and Combrig Models produces a very nice model of Viribus Unitis in 1/350 scale. Like most Combrig kits, the barrels for the armament is cast in resin. If you want to upgrade your armament from resin, Master Model has a set of turned barrels for the Viribus Unitis.

The set includes 42 parts: 12 305mm turned aluminum barrels for the main armament, and 30 turned brass barrels for the secondary (12) and tertiary (18) armament. 
Close ups of some of the parts details.
Instructions are a small piece of paper, approximated 5 ½ by 4 inches, which show a drawing of each type of barrel included in the set, along with textual instructions on how to install them on the model. 
These barrels are very nice, and will add a nice touch to your scale Viribus Unitis. 

This is Master Models set SM-350-076, SMS Viribus Unitis Armament Gun Barrels. The set retails for $17.99 and is available from many of our fine sponsors. Highly recommended. Thanks to Master Model for the review sample.
