Barracuda Studios has just released a cannon barrel set for 1/32 scale Skyhawk kits.

 

 

The set comprises a pair of detailed 3D printed 20mm Colt cannon barrels with muzzle brakes complete with accurately placed and sized vent holes. Barrels are deeply drilled out.

These barrels will be suitable for most A-4C and later Skyhawk kits, with the exception of IAF aircraft, which are fitted with different model cannon.

They will be relevant for the old Hasegawa or the newer 1/32 scale Trumpeter kits. They should be a drop-fit replacement.

 

 

The quality of all the parts is excellent. I can't find any striations or other printing artefacts on the 3d printed parts. Detail is crisp.

This is a simple upgrade for your Hasegawa or Trumpeter 1/32 scale A-4 Skyhawk kits.

Thanks to Barracuda Studios for the sample
