L'Arsenal now has a 1:350 scale detail part set for this twin 5-inch mount. The set number is AC 350-13 and it includes 25 resin parts, plus instructions. In the pack are five turrets, ten gun barrels with blast bags (bloomers) and ten gun barrels without blast bags, so the modeler has the option of which way to portray the mounts.
