Paper Naval gun barrels

OK, potentially stupid question here, but I've been given a number of the GPM 1:200 scale naval vessel models; including Bismarck and Prince of Wales among others.

Making the barrels for the main and secondary armaments looks like world-class frustration material. The only tutorial on making long THIN paper tubes I can find appear to roll the paper on a shallow angle (I am assuming this is to make sure you get the tubes long enough).

Unfortunately, that technique looks to me like it would have a net result of a 'spiral' pattern along the length of the barrel...not something I want to achieve.

Can anybody assist, or is my only solution to seek refuge in the brass aftermarket part sphere?
