Topic: Lion Roar 20mm and 40mm upgrades for Italeri kit
http://www.ptboatforum.com/cgi-bin/MB2/netboardr.cgi?cid=101&fid=102&tid=923



Greetings,
Lion Roar released upgrades for the 20mm and 40mm guns on the Italeri PT-596 kit. If you're looking for a lower cost option for beefing up your PT this is a good choice. Hopefully they will also release some .50 cal barrels.
You can buy these at Dragon's web site

Hi there.

They sure do look good. I wonder what their cost will be? The Italeri 40mm Bofors kit is about $50 here.
