The quality of the machining has to be seen to be appreciated........these are amazingly detailed and of the highest quality.  This set includes 8 turned brass Browning .50 blast tubes, a turned brass pitot tube with a cast resin end piece and gun sights. This set is very simple to use on your model, and makes it extremely realistic. Simply cut off the original plastic barrels and pitot tube and drill a hole in the remaining parts and insert the metal parts using Cyanoacrylate adhesives.

The P-47 Thunderbolt was loaded with guns and this set permits you to get these 3 areas very accurate with fine detail.

You can purchase these and other fine detail items directly from the Master website.   

I would like to thank Master for providing me with this product sample.  Visit their website for more finely crafted detail items in a variety of scales.
