I've used Flyhawk 1/700 resin/PE replacement 4" Mk XVI guns a few times. They were very good. The last time I bought a set (last year) the castings looked like the moulds were wearing out - no longer sharply cast, and some rivet and surface details were becoming indistinct (same for their 4.7" guns). Their plastic equivalents as found on HMS Penelope, IMHO, are far superior to their previous resin castings and are a lot less fiddley to assemble. I hope Flyhawk release their styrene 4" gun sprues as a separate weapon kit soon. Great upgrade to IBG destroyers, etc.
