Many thanks for your comments gentlemen.

Adrian, there are a lot of gun barrels on the mighty Mo in 1945 so I have a lot of firing to do.

Cheers David.

Hi,

I have finally made all of the metal parts for the 5" secondary armament for the mighty mo, as regards to the barrels the length is correct but the diameters are guess work as to what looks right. After designing and making these parts it gives a good appreciation for how much work goes into a new armortek kit like the new Leopard model, that is going to be a very Interesting kit to see when it's put through its tests and running.

Back to the 5" turrets the next job is to apply the outer skin of plasticard and add all details, whilst doing this I have to think about how I am going to make the quadruple 40mm AA guns and mounts that is 80 barrels and that will be time consuming.

Cheers David
