It funny that you say that because I have had an unbuilt kit and when I went to find my 20mm mags there were none in the bags. So I am going to take one from a existing boat and cast some more. Would you like some... for the same price as before? I am also making some new stands for them as well. Once you make one its eazy to make more.

Well I decided to check the 40mm kit this morning...I am no expert on these weapons that is for sure but I do seem to recall in the pictures I have seen there is supposed to be a long tube like thing with a cone on the end. I think the projectile travels down this tube from the breach. I sure wish my kit had one of these. It is going to look really funny without that part.....

Only if it was real and you were trying to actually shoot something. I think a scratch made one will turn out better in the long run even if it means more work.

Kinda looks that way. Another scratch part coming right up. I am afraid to open any other parts bags. Just going to work on finishing up the details for the lockers.

When it comes to the 40mm gun I like to scratch build the barrel and reciever anyway. For a few years now the quaility of the guns has been getting poorer. I think it was that no one wanted to redo the molds and just ran the old one into the ground.
