The quality of the machining has to be seen to be appreciated........these are amazingly detailed and of the highest quality.  This were the standard Japanese aircraft machine gun during World War II and this set is suitable for all model kits in 1:48 scale.  These were used in many Japanese fighters and bombers during WWII.  

The set includes two turned brass barrels with drilled cooling jacket. It is very simple to use in Your model, and makes it extremely realistic. Simply cut off the original plastic barrel and drill a hole in the remaining plastic parts and insert the metal barrel using Cyanoacrylate adhesives.

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