The quality of the machining has to be seen to be appreciated........these are amazingly detailed and of the highest quality.  These parts are suitable for all model kits in 1/48 scale.  This set includes turned brass barrels. It is very simple to use on your model, and makes it extremely realistic.

1. Replace or cut off original plastic barrels.

2. Insert metal parts using Cyanoacrylate adhesives.

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

These barrels are tiny and the detail is beyond belief and so exact.  These are well worth picking up for your next 1/48 will not be disappointed....this is excellence in detail.
