I am in the middle of building a 1:48 scale Royal Navy Black swan class frigate, problem is that I am having a hard time with the 4in gun barrels, as my lathe is too small and I'm not good enough to spin up six identical barrels!
Does anyone know of someone who would take a commission on to make the for me ?
Thanks for your help

Hi Wes,


You can contact the owner of B&D Barrels directly and they do preform commission work. The scale should be something easy for them as they already have some 1/400 stuff on their list...just not British 4" barrels. Here is the link to the website - http://www.bdbarrels.com/ His email is located right at the top of the page!

Good luck!

You may also want to write to ABER they make custom barrels for me.
