The Kit…


This is a small piece of after market addition but a big improvement for the Zvezda 1/350 Varyag kit.

You will receive with this set 152mm (12pcs), 75mm (12pcs) and 47mm (8pcs)
I included a photo showing each barrel for you to judge.

The advantage of brass barrels over the plastic parts is obvious. The brass barrels will keep their shape and not deform no matter changing temperatures. Also these barrels are true to scale.


The Instructions…


The instructions are a small sheet of paper indicating to cut the Zvezda given plastic barrels and replace them with the brass parts by using super glue.
