The quality of the machining has to be seen to be appreciated........these are amazingly detailed and of the highest quality.  This set includes 12 turned brass barrels. It is very simple to use on your model, and makes it extremely realistic. Simply drill a hole in the model and insert the metal barrel using Cyanoacrylate adhesives.

It is very difficult to do these delicate Luftwaffe nightfighter radar antennas.  The plastic parts that come in models are thick and crude and the photo etch antenna sets are flat and 2 dimensional, so this set is VERY special indeed.  If you want to get your antennas looking right then this is the set to get.

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.
