The quality of the machining has to be seen to be appreciated........these are amazingly detailed and of the highest quality.  This set includes 5 turned brass barrels made from 5 parts. It is very simple to use on your model, and makes it extremely realistic. Simply drill a hole in the nose parts and insert these metal barrels using Cyanoacrylate adhesives.

I love the guns in the nose of the P-38, the nose guns were a focal point on the P-38 and this set does a marvelous job highlighting those deadly guns with crisp accurate detail.
