LionMarc Model Designs turns out some very impressive aftermarket details for the armor modeler. This is probably the most impressive set I've seen to date!
This set consists of a turned aluminum barrel, a brass muzzle brake, and a small metal spacer. Simply cyano the lot together and plug the barrel into the mount where the original kit barrel would go.
This set provides a straight, solid, seamless barrel assembly. The end of the aluminum barrel is hollowed out for a fraction of an inch, so when you look down the muzzle, you'll see down the barrel into the darkness.
My sincere thanks to Wings n Treads ( www.wingsntreads.com) for this review sample. Check out the other LionMarc as well as other cool aftermarket products that they carry!
