This latest release from Master features a pair of 1/48 Japanese Type 99 20mm Mark 2 gun barrels (4pcs) machined out of brass.  These were the standard Japanese aircraft autocannon during World War II. Used in many fighters and bombers.  These barrels can be used in all model kits in 1:48 scale.

The quality of the machining has to be seen to be appreciated........these are amazingly detailed and of the highest quality.  This set includes 4 turned brass barrels. It is very simple to use on your model, and makes it extremely realistic. Simply cut off the original plastic barrel and drill a hole in the remaining parts and insert the metal barrel using Cyanoacrylate adhesives.

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

These brass barrels have drilled out ends and are a huge improvement over the plastic barrels in most kits.
