Westland Whirlwind Mk.I Gun Barrels (Q32395 for Special Hobby)

1:32 CMK by Special Hobby




There were lots of happy faces when the new Special Hobby 1:32 Westland Whirlwind arrived, although a few people might have been sad that it wasn’t a helicopter.  We reviewed the kit here, and some nice resin wheels & canopy masks here.  Now we have the gun barrels to look at, which were well-detailed in the kit, but could always do with a little more crispness that resin offers.




The set arrives in a green-themed CMK Quick & Easy shallow clamshell box, with simple instructions between the resin and backing card.  Inside are two pairs of resin gun barrels on their own casting blocks, which are drop-in replacements for the kit parts once you’ve liberated them from their blocks.  There’s an advert for the CMK razor saw on the instructions, and one of those is the ideal solution to getting them separated, so consider picking one up if you don’t already have one.  The detail is better than the styrene parts when compared against each other, and the muzzles are hollow, so you don’t need to drill anything out.


Highly recommended.
