Scale:  These barrels are designed at 95% of 1/350 scale specifically to fit Model Monkey turrets designed for the Blue Water Navy 1/350 scale USS West Virginia BB-48 kit or Yankee Modelworks 1/350 scale USS West Virginia BB-48 kit.  A sample YMW kit indicates that those kits are slightly under-scale, possible due to typical resin shrinkage during curing.

Set includes 8 barrels (4 pair) fixed to trunnions.  For those who prefer using your own brass barrels, a set of slotted trunnions is available separately.

Recommended only for:

  • Blue Water Navy 1/350 scale USS West Virginia BB-48  (1941)
  • Yankee Modelworks 1/350 scale USS West Virginia BB-48  (1941)

These models represent the 16"/45 caliber main battery naval rifles of the Colorado class battleships USS Colorado BB-45, USS Maryland BB-46, the never commissioned USS Washington BB-47, and USS West Virginia BB-48.

These 3D-printed parts are designed to accurately represent features of the real barrels based on official US Navy drawings.  These barrels are not 3D-printed copies of any plastic or resin kit's parts and therefore may be shaped and sized differently than those parts.  Some adjustment to your kit's parts or other aftermarket parts such as photo-etch or wood decks may be necessary for best fit. 

Accurately scaled from official US Navy drawings.


This barrels of this set are include integrated trunnions.  If you buy this set of barrels, you do not need to buy a set of trunnions available separately.
