LionMarc Model Designs 1/35 Challenger II Barrel Set First Look
|Date of Review||August 2006||Manufacturer||LionMarc Model Designs|
|Subject||Challenger II Barrel Set||Scale||1/35|
|Kit Number||LM20000||Media||Aluminum, resin|
|Pros||Easy upgrade for the Tamiya kit||Cons|
|Skill Level||Basic||MSRP (USD)||$15.00|
Here is a look at a most impressive replacement barrel set from LionMarc Model Designs. This set contains a multi-part replacement barrel set for the Tamiya Challenger II kit. The core is a turned aluminum barrel that has two resin hollow-cast thermal sleeves, one for each side of the bore extractor, and a second aluminum part for the barrel tip.
If you look at the casting of the thermal sleeve alone, you'll see that this will really enhance the appearance of your main gun, and neither the sleeves nor the barrel have mold-marks nor seams like the kit barrel.
