1/400 Scale HMS King George V Dual 5.25 Inch Guns x8. These are highly detailed parts for the Airfix/Heller 1/400 HMS King George V as seen in 1941. These guns are specific to the KGV as the KGV guns had a smaller intake vent on the mounting side. The 1941 versions have flush access hatches on the mounting roof and minimal ventilation.
Highly detailed, accurate replacement parts, modelled from plans and photographic reference.
Barrels are printed separately and can be angles as desired
details include Hex nuts, open sighting ports, accurate venting and access hatches
Cleaning Information Some part cleanup will be necessary. The 3D printing process uses a waxy substance to support certain part features during the printing process. Although the parts are cleaned by Shapeways, some waxy residue may remain. It can be safely removed with water and a mild aqueous detergent like "Simple Green" using an old, soft toothbrush, Q-tips or pipe cleaners. During the printing process, liquid resin is cured by ultraviolet light. Microscopic bits of resin may remain uncured.
Let your parts sit in direct sunlight for a few hours to fully cure the resin. Water-based acrylic paints meant for plastics is strongly recommended. Other paints, especially enamels, may not cure on Frosted Detail 3D-printed plastics. Use dedicated model sprue cutters to remove parts to minimise the risk of damage to parts.
