The quality of the machining and resin casting has to be seen to be appreciated........these are amazingly detailed and of the highest quality.  This set includes 3 turned brass parts and 2 resin parts. It is very simple to use on your model, and makes it extremely realistic. Simply cut off the original plastic parts and drill a hole in the remaining parts and insert the metal barrel using Cyanoacrylate adhesives.

The gun in this particular set is a resin casting marvel and I am stunned it is possible to make this part in 1 piece with resin casting.  The brass rod down the middle of the gun does an amazing job enhancing the fine detail on this 4 barrel gatling gun.  The DUAS probe probe is a complicated 3 piece item with the most delicate and finely crafted wings I have seen. 

This set will add a level of detail that far surpasses the detail of the original plastic parts.  I'm quite stunned and seriously impressed by the detail that has been created in this set. 

Sets for Mi-24 in another scales:

  • AM-35-003 and 72-110

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