Cant find specific stand alone railing for Warspite but you do get it some of the sets. Specifically the Pontos set springs to mind as well as the Mk1 design set.

Both are extensive and a bit pricey though.

I will say from personal experience the Pontos set is excellent

Your link requires a google log in, so I can't see it.

That being said, even though the WEM set is for the Academy kit, you should be able to use it with the Trumpeter kit with no problem. Take your time, measure before you cut, then measure again. Work in short sections at at time. Don't try and lay down long runs of railing, as it tends to bend and wave if it's too long. At least, that's been my experience.

Good luck and have fun.
