I need to aplogie to everybody. This is the evidence of how sometime we modellers complicate our lives by ourselves. Only after reading a few replies....i remembered i had actually closed the gap under the barrel with Milliput as , when i saw it, i tought "....mhhh, it might be viseable, let's close it".  I did, and probbably too smoothly, and then i forget. All sorted now, thanks for your help
