Regia Marina already offers a wide variety of upgrades. Since they specialize in Italian Navy subjects, it only seems logical to offer upgrades for the Roma and sisterships
Nine nicely machined Aluminum barrels are provided to upgrade your Roma , Littorio, or Veneto  to a more realistic appearance. These barrels appear to match the Italian BB's guns in shape and dimensions.

Instructions show how to use the new gun barrels with the kit parts with several photos. 
These are some really nice gun barrels that will really dress up the Trumpeter kit. They are a vast improvement over the clunky plastic ones found in the kit. This is set #AF082 barrels for kit Roma - Littorio - Veneto Trumpeter 1/350 (381 mm) x9 with a list price of 7,86€ for EU customers. Price for non EU customers is 6,50€  or about 8.39 US at the exchange rate as of October 2012. 

More information can be found on the Regia Marina website. You can buy these online at distributors such as Pacific Front Hobbies or wherever fine ship model accessories are sold.
