Can someone that has the 1/200 Missouri model, please post some photos of the stock kit anti-aircraft guns? Thanks in advance. :wave_1:

:woo_hoo: Good morning Tom, I'm n the middle of painting the utility room right now, but later on this afternoon I'll take some pictures for you. Do you want both the 20mm Orlikons as well as the 40mm Quad Bofors? Mine are still on the sprue (unassembled) if that makes any difference. I'm using Pontos 20mm and Veterans for the 40mm Bofors.

I'm not sure what the max number of photos you can have on 1 post, so I'll show the 40mm Quad Bofors in the following post.

Thank you for posting those. Should I decide that I want to buy and build this particular model, I'm still unsure if I would use all of the upgrade sets or just stick with the kit included parts.

For my 1:192 Alaska CB1 I used the Pontos mod's of the stock 40 mm, which replaces many parts of the mounts with PE to good effect. The Veterans Models 40 mm quads are probably even better. The 20 mm by Pontos are quite spectacular if a bit fussy to assemble in quantity.

Cheers: Tom
