My pleasure Frank! I'd been trying for ages to get my hands on a similar barrel from Armorscale with no luck, so the fact that LionMarc produced one and with better detail than the Armorscale offering was a double win in the end. Thanks for your comments.

An excellent review Bill on what is in essence a very small item. Get the duster out and use it on your display stand.

An excellent review Bill on what is in essence a very small item. Get the duster out and use it on your display stand.



It is tiny for sure Darren, the "stand" I used for it is itself only 3.5cm in diameter at the top. The "dust" you're seeing on it is a combination of scratches and small fibers from it having fallen into the carpet from time to time. The macro lens I use is very good for this type of work although it did take a bit of effort to set up the shots and keep the barrel from rolling around while doing so.
