Greetings,
My friend Jerry came across a company that makes Browning .50 cal aircraft barrels in both 1/32 and 1/48. They are beauties. Have a look. These would dress up both the Lindberg & Bluejacket kits very nicely. I suggested to them that they produce some in 1/35 scale for the Italeri PT Boat. Hopefully they will come through with that. These are currently available from White Ensign Models. Have a look...

Those are beautiful, Dave. Wish they'd do 'em in 1/72nd scale.

I don't think it would be worth trying to machine them that small. I even thought the WEM photo etch barrels looked too big. The best I found are the Aires barrels. They even have flash suppressors on them if you like. They paint up very nice.
