Hello guys,
I've just recently discovered wide offer of Rainbow Model accesories, and I'm very interested in their two versions of 140mm guns:
http://www.rainbowmodel.com/proshow.asp?proid=104
http://www.rainbowmodel.com/proshow.asp?proid=105

Both sets look great on their page, but has anyone used them already?


I have the Rainbow Resin Gun houses for the 140mm IJN guns on their CLs.

They are really nice. Now if I could just finish building the danger bridge for my Nagara.

After Matthews recommendation I've ordered the resin shields, and those are really fine. A nic addition to my Hasegawa Tenryu, even in deluxe version Hasegawa doesn't provide us with any add-ons for the shields.

I compared resin gun breech with Hasegawa's plastic gun, and it's interesting to see that they have completely different shape, Hasegawa being round and Rainbow being square-shaped. Are there any gun breech photos to confirm the shape?

Another thing is this weird photo-etched...frame around each shield. It is marked as an optional addition, but I haven't seen such thing in any picture of those shields in reality. What is this supposed to be?

I only have a side view drawing. I believe the gun is a 50 Cal Type 3 14cm. The breach was a screw breech. You could search for the gun type.

I've found a nice photo of salvaged 140mm on NavWeaps:

Rainbow seems to have done a much better job with this detail.

My bad, on the side of the ship, adjacent to the stacks are 6 panels that run from just aft of the tower to just under the rear torpedo tubes. They sit just above the armour belt.

I was wondering if they were hatches for coal/oiling. Does that make sense?

Looks like a riveted butt joint to me. I would guess there are more than just those four. http://d2vlcm61l7u1fs.cloudfront.net/me ... QShYba.png

Similar joints can be seen on Naka: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/ ... r_Naka.jpg

Mike is right in the numbers of stiffeners. They can be 7,8, or 9 depending on ships,sizes and shapes vary from ship type to other types. IJN did this obviousloy for strengthening against hull deflection. Deflecton rate is so different from ship to ship. They say the largest deflection occurred on non-ribetted ships,the cause of nr.4th fleet accidents...
