The quality of the machining has to be seen to be appreciated........these are amazingly detailed and of the highest quality.

This set can be used in all P-38 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. Simply replace original plastic parts
  • 2. Insert metal parts using Cyanoacrylate adhesives.

The P-38 was a very special Allied fighter because it had a nose full of guns.  These brass barrels will be a vast improvement over the kit barrels. 

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