    I purchased a Missouri kit a couple of years ago. Now want to build it and have seen the 4 x 40 gun tubs in photo etch advertised but without guns. Are these to be purchased seperately in the gun barrel section?

    You can buy the complete set of barrels seperately. They include the 40mm and you'll need the big guns anyway. I too have this kit and purchased the radar set with the barrels.

    I did not purchase the tubs, I believe they are too expensive and paper looks great when the barrels are added. The Iowa has alot of 40's.

    thanks for the reply. they are indeed expensive. but so I understand you, the guns and the protective guards you get with the photo etch. but you buy the 40mm barrels seperately?
    it's confusing as they display with the 40 mm barrels on the guns.
    I did not realise they sold photo etched tubs for the 40 mm guns as well.................
