For those who are building a 1/350 Kongo class or Hasegawa's new Agano, Flyhawk has come to the rescue with this great little set of ten turned brass barrels. Sharp rendering makes this set a winner, especially as more of the Agano class gets released.
The only drawback is the total amount of guns in the set. While ten is more than enough for an Agano, a Kongo (or Fuso) needs four to six more depending on ship and date. On the other hand, there may be a reason for this, as two sets will give you twenty barrels-- enough to do fourteen guns on a Kongo and the six on an Agano...
Highs: Nicely rendered. Perfect for Kongo or Agano classes.Lows: Will need two sets to fit out a Kongo class.Verdict: A great upgrade for Kongo class and Agano class ships.
