Tim,
How do they handle the metal gun barrels? I've seen thier earlier architectural offerings. I wasn't much interested in the kits before, but it looks like some of the details of the Arizona and now this new Missouri could be adapted for other kits- like the radars, gun barrels and catapult details. Could you post some close up photos of the Arizona?
VR, Russ

Tim, thanks-- so the barrels are flat, but in the product photos they look round-- at least for the Missouri? Still there may be some complex shapes that would be useful for scratch building.
