Bofors 40mm L/60 Medium Anti-aircraft gun. This gun was bought by Portugal in the late 1930s and brought to the UK by a collector in the 1980's. It is fitted with the original reflector sights and no crew armour. Pics mine.
British replacement barrels 1:350 Master Master models continue to build up their range of 1:350 scale armament sets which now includes the three latest releases we have here. As usual they are up to the standard weve come to expect from Master Models. [350-079] The first set is for the Trumpeter HMS Belfast which not only includes both main, (6), and secondary, (4), armament, but also comes with resin parts to replace the inaccurate main gun mountings provided in the kit and will give the model the unusual look that the triple turrets had, with the centre gun positioned slightly aft of the two outer guns. The resin is for the main trunnion mountings along with what would be the barrel mounts, and brass pins to act as the trunnions. Clean up of the resin is slight, especially as not a lot of it will be seen when fitted. [350-080] This set is for the Trumpeter HMS Roberts and comprises of the main 15 barrels and the secondary, (4), barrels. The main barrels are in turned aluminium whilst the secondaries are in the more normal brass. [350-081] This set provides the modeller with twenty 40mm Bofors barrels and can be used on any model fitted with such weapons. The finesse of turning on these tiny barrels is something to be seen, although not easy to photograph. Conclusion Well, theres not a lot more to say about these sets, other than you NEED them, a must for all maritime modellers. They are so much better than the injection moulded ones can ever be, and will really enhance the finished models. Very highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of Piotr at
