Brass Barrels in 1:700 Scale from NNT

Many modelers do not realize that there is an extensive range of brass barrels that are produced by NNT. The following photographs show nine of the types of barrels that are currently available from NNT in this ever increasing range of quality products. Most barrels have the muzzles bored out. The 5.9-Inch (150mm) and 6-Inch (152mm) guns appear to come 12 per bag, while the larger guns appear to be 10 per bag. However, check the NNT web site for the exact count per gun type.
