The barrel consists of the barrel proper plus the flash suppressor but the six muzzle brake holes are only represented as indentations with the flash suppressor only slightly hollowed out. Fitting the barrel is easy, just cut off the kit barrel, drill a small hole (.9mm) and fit the new aluminium barrel.
The spent shell container has the frames in resin and you are provided with a large resin ‘jig’ to build the frame around with the addition of some thin plastic rod you have to supply yourself and to which you add the fine mesh provided.
A small instruction sheet shows the assembly of the framework and the lengths of plastic rod needed but unfortunately doesn’t give any patterns to cut the mesh and this could be quite tricky to get right.
Overall the provision of the ejected cartridges container could be quite useful to add a different feel to your Flak38 but unfortunately the barrel is no where as nice as the recent Schatton 20mm Flak38 barrel
